Fabricated protectors for a wench

I fabricated these wench drum protectors to replace the ones from the factory as they were too flimsy and continued to get dammaged due to the use of this towing truck.  The original protectors are the bent pieces of metal to the right.  This tow truck is used to haul junker cars and sometimes more than one so they needed something strong and durable.

I used a piece of 10″ standard pipe for the radius and 3/8″ plate for the flat pieces.  I think the bolts that hold this to the wench mount will fail before the guards do.
