    Why do some builds have the half moon shape shield above thermometer?

    Got done early today! She is set on trailer with wood box all done except a floor. Built the shelf 12" x 67" think it could of went out to 14 - 15"? I used 1/8" x 2" flat with 1" x 1" x 1/8" welded on inside to stiffen it up plus give me a lip to set expanded metal on. The wood box will be 12-1/2" deep x 73" long x 24" wide. I used 2" x 2" x 1/8" to frame in around wood box.
