Radiator 'cover'?

Recently i have relocated my radiator onmy brute,thank MIMB....U ROCK!! I have seen the 'covers', if thats what you call them, on different radiators out there. For example....gorilla, extreme, wild boar, etc, etc, etc.....
My question is this...I am waaaayyyy to cheap to run out and spend that kinda money on something to have a brand name, so i want to fabricate my own 'cover'. Has anyone else ever done this, what did you make it out of, and how difficult was it to do??
Thanks in advance.....

Wood Butcher used the side panel off of a window unit air conditioner. He's got a pic of it here somewhere. It looks very professional.

You could probably make the frame for the cover out of 1/2" angle iron and use sheet metal as the actual cover that you'd like to make a design in. You could probably print out whatever design you want and make a stencil out of it. Trace the stencil onto the cover and cut out with a jig saw.

Crawfishie a friend of mine relocated the radiator on his brute and welded together some angle iron at the angle he wanted and used u-bolts through the brackets to hold it onto the front rack, when he tied in the front angle he drilled four small holes in it one at each corner, and got a sturdy piece of grill and just cut it out in the size he needed with a cut off wheel and used heavy duty zip ties to hold the grill to the frame in front of the radiator, just thought i'd try to help you out it s a cheap way to protect your radiator from debris and damage. Ruffin Outlaw P.S. i'll try to get you a pic of it on here.

Very good ideas guys.....this is just an idea.....I was kicking around. Anymore out there?
Since I have access to a welding shop and full machine shop, this should not be very hard. I was thinking of water cutting a design of the state of Texas in the front, and bending some 14ga metal to form what I want, bead blast, prime, and paint....anyone think this is a crazy idea?
I will post pics after I get done or a video....maybe a how to?? idk not too good with that kinda stuff.

I am prolly doing this this weekend, and I will be using aluminum diamondplate. I have two things on my mind:

1. build a sliding jig for the drill press, and drill 1/2" holes every inch or so

2. cut slots in it with a jig saw with 'drilled' rounded ends and call it good.

Once its done, I am going to paint it with black rubberized bed liner.

I made mine out of aluminum diamond plate. I did the 1/2 inch holes thing. I've been thinking of redoing it to something like what wood butcher did. I'll put some pics up of mine when I get home.
