    Posting this for Camaro77. Custom built stainless steel snowfoil for 8' xblades. He has two more that were spoken for so he purchased the material and made them but they are now unspoken for and he is sitting on them. They are for sale. check it out.

    I'm not knocking your work because they look slick, but when they get bent it will look crappy. They look like they will bend up if you hit a pile and the snow is heavy.

    they are 1/8 in think and that was the first one the others have a 5 inch long gusset and they are plenty stiff unless you hit something other that snow or ice

    Looks nice but kind of sticks out a little far. Gonna be tough if you need to get close to garage doors

    on the same idea but fisher does not make one for the X BLADE just the rubber flap and it does not work well plowing town roads
