Still beavering away.  Here's the front wheel.  The discs aren't rusty, It's a reflection of the flash off the brickwork.

You can't turn up on here and start using words like gauche.
It's that kind of language that causes international incidents.

I quite like beavers.  Wonderful animals  8)

Been working on the tail/seat unit today.  Got a tail from an early R6.  Jeez, are they wide or what?  I'm a big lad, almost 6-Four in my socks and 265, but I look like a toy perched on one.  To make matters worse, it's wider than the fuel tank cover and looks daft.  Not a problem - cut out 3" along the middle length -ways, and used the bits I chopped out to fashion braclets which I bonded with Sikaflex to reattach the two halves.  Lovely.

What's this sikaflex all about? I need to repair a side panel, sounds like it might do the trick. I did a search and it came up with lots of different ones.

It's a high strength automotive adhesive, used for sticking spoilers etc to bodywork.  I had half a tube knocking about from another job.

The stuff I used is Sikaflex EBT in black, which is their general purpose adhesive and sealant.  Plenty of 'Sikaflex EBT' on eBay and the like. Used properly it'll join sheet steel to sheet steel and give a stronger join than welding, and that's no bull.
