After drilling and bending I painted using a Flat
Black Rustoleum paint. I forgot to drill the holes along the
front side edge for the cable-ties you will see in the next pictures.
Also notice the elongated holes on my
mount, this was because I needed a bit more room to clear the saddlebag
and had already cut the metal
off on the end - DON'T DO THAT - leave room for both ends and bend all
your angles FIRST.
