When I fabricated the rack to put the trunk on my bike, I had to match weld it in place on the bike so the bolts would line up with the fender holes.
I put one of those Harbor Freight Free shipping blankets (with coupon) over the fender and mufflers so the sparks would not damage the paint and a wet towel over the fender right where I was welding it.
That damn blanket caught fire like it was soaked in gasoline. If I had not been standing right next to the bike and pulled it off, I would have lost the bike.
