Well, you are half way there. I did see some at a swap meet recently, but they were so bad that even I passed them up. The cost of chrome is killer anymore. I would think someone out there would be making them by now. They don't look very complex. Just a good technician with a tube bender and the other few parts there are to them. If I had any ability,............... if.

I picked up a length of tubing and bit of rod ,along with a couple of nuts ,so I just need an electrician with a tube bender to make the bends and I can weld the rest on,but chroming is around 175.00 I'm told .At least it will look nice.

Make them out of stainless and buff them.

I have this style also, but I see others for bubble bags with more than one tube, I think three rows??? Which style would be the original style?

PanPal,
I think what you are talking about are these. I don't see them in the factory parts book 58-68. I have seen them referred to as Buco aftermarket guards from the period. The flat portion facing up is not part of the guards, those are the bubble bag mounting bracket, which these guards mount to also.

Yes, these are the ones. They do look good! Thanks for the information.
