I looked on google but was only getting places that do the laser cutting in plastic signs and more into 'craft' type stuff and di not look like they had sheet metal so i think GMC is the way to go here once i confirm hole size, thickness and spacing i want. i got a feeling one site saying 16g was 1.2mm was a wire gauge, not sheet gauge so thats why i had 2 sites telling me different things. I tested a piece of 1.2mm sheet and it bent easily with pliers so i think i will go with 1.2mm for sure as its is equal to 18G and is what the Bassani sales brochure says they used. 1mm might be a little thin?
I specifically like the look of the Bassani guards so i want that look. Other brands used much smaller holes that i don't like the look of those
With the small dag i am prepared to run a file through the holes or drill bit to clean them up so i think that wont be a problem.
So once i get details on hole spacing and or draw up something on paper so i can get a better visual idea of the hole size/spacing i will get in contact with you.
Thanks
Wanted - 1978 TS185 frame or frame&motor. Frame # TS1852-24007 up to TS1852-39022

33.5 horizontal and 22.5 verticle.

That's measured outside to outside  with a hole 8.9
I will stick some more pics on the fb post.

Some time ago i was looking for perforated mesh and vaguely remembered that locker group around moorabbin or "Clayton or similar had many types of mesh
May be worth a "Google"
They have both expanded and perforated mesh
Locker.com.au
Thumbs Up!

Not quite GMC but close. The hole arrangement isn't square and vertices measurement is directly above.

Remember guys these were Yankee devices so would be US  gauge and US imperial measurements and it's not symetrical. On my phone so techy stuff is difficult.

Gotcha;



Also 1.2 sheet will most likely measure 1.1mm

I put a subliminal message in it that will make you want to make Paypal gifts to me ;D

Next step is to work out what size piece you really need.
Laser cutters quote their work based on the total length of cutting and how many stops and starts.
This piece looks to me to be bigger than what is needed so it would be wise to trim it down otherwise you will be paying for the cutting of a lot of holes that you are going to throw in the bin

Now now boys, Real men know that Kawasaki's aren't evil,
Everything worth writing about those other brands can be found on a T shirt

1/2 to 3/4's of a lap eh?
Are you intending on crashing out or breaking down?
If you are able to define the spot a bit better it would be a great help to the sweeps that are going to tow you out :o
