ISCG tab mounted bash guard
Long story short, I couldn't fit the chain guide I wanted in my TransAM frame so I ended up it a chain guide (e13 TRS) that does not have a bash guard. The guide works great, but I'm weary of not having a bash guard.
I was considering taking an old bash guard and cutting/modifying/drilling some holes in it to mount on the inside of chain guide tabs.
I could make it work, but I was wondering if this would bend the ISCG tabs on an impact. The tabs are steel if that makes a difference. Has anyone tried this?

worst case you would bend them back.
I'd think the bash would bend first, which I'd rather have happen than messing up the frame/chain/ring. Don't see why it couldn't work though, you'd in effect just be making a taco bash.
The taco bash on my Reign-X has taken a few good hits and the tabs seem good so far...
Trim it small enough to juuuuuuust cover over your chain/ring for maximum coverage?
