The fork brace/mount for the SRX mudguard is normally attached to the mudguard by rivets and washers, I had to remove these in order to repair and paint the mudguard so needed to come up with a replacement. The mudguard runs quite close to the tyre so I had to find something that had a fairly low profile, after spending a few hours on the lathe I made these, they are made from stainless steel 6mm rod connectors (Ebay).

The mudguard is built up around the mounting holes so if I need further clearance I can gain a few millimetres by grind these back.
After polishing the brace this is what the mudguard looks like.
