H2C Short Fender

If anyone is thinking of changing thiers to the H2C Fender, here's some info & pics of the one I bought today.
Kind of Mini review!

What's in the Box..

The Fender, is solid aluminium unpainted. (Approx 3mm). L 39cm x W 22.5cm
The left and right bracket arms are black painted steel (Approx 4mm)
There is also a steel wedge shaped painted fixing. (Approx 1.5mm. for mounting the stop light
1 screw set
2 page instructions, disassemble & assembly.
Boxed weight 3.2kg

My thoughts before I bought this is that I wanted to see what I was getting for my money as this part seemed expensive.
To my surprise it's all very well constructed being all the materials are a good thickness. You can't physically flex the Fender or the bracket arms
The Fender has printed drill hole markings for the stop light mount.
Instruction drawings are reasonably understandable, although I cannot read the Thai instructions.

I'm quite pleased with the quality of this Fender & looking forward to installing.
I'm not drilling any holes yet or using the wedge shaped bracket as I intend to find the desired brake light, but for now I have an LED brake/indicator flexi strip of which a lot of folk are using.
As Alloy oxidises, I would think I'd have to at least paint the underside with some paint/sealer. Any advice on that?

Overall, good quality, strong, & if you sat on it after mounting I'm sure it wouldn't budge.

I seriously want a shorter fender too, but you "can't" ride when it's wet then! Your whole back will be.. wet... And dirty. And so will the bike be too.

That's true you may get wet & dirty but this is the reason I bought H2C being longer and not the very short K-speed ABS plastic one.
It looks good but not practical for poor weather conditions.

When do the parts come available in north America that won't cost as much as the bike more like it. Not a fan of universal fitting crap.
