Nope it is rolled 1/4" steel. They were cement colum protectors in a warehouse. We were sandblasting and pointing the brick. The Owner wanted them thrown away. So I threw them right in my truck.

OMG! Bullet dodged! No snow and just some ice In CR anyway. Had 3/4" at home. Well I spent the day making some new Western Plow light enclosures out of steel The plastic $47.00 garbage ones do not hold up. Sorry I don't have any pics, I'll get some marrow. Cole, you didn't get to test your plow either did you?

The driver broke two that first snow we had. It's not fun changing those plastic pieces of crap in the dark and cold. If he brakes these he can run a shovel.
