So only had a two week break, and the newest addition to the clan has managed to keep me pretty busy so progress has been slow at best

Because I couldnít find the stickers anywhere Iíve decided to get my brother to make them up. But first he needed a template.



So out came the butchers paper, after a few lines it became apparent to me that I will never become a brain surgeon.





After scrawling like a reforming alcoholic for a bit I managed to come up with something that vaguely resembled the decal

Iím not expecting much more progress this break as I fly out on the first :/ unfortunately I havenít got anyone to sponsor my motorcycle addiction so Iíll have to keep on working.

So I thought Iíd try my hand at making a tray for the battery and electrical harness out of ..... fibreglass.

I should have known how this would end up but Iím a glutton for punishment , but this is all about sharing.



So it all starts pretty well, I kept telling myself preparation is everything


Checked all the components would fit, seemed a little tight (a little too tight in hind sight)



Then I used some wax as a releasing agent and began the fibreglassing



I put some steel straps in for additional support




Came out pretty rough as I was trying to lay down the fibreglass in a tight spot and was having difficulty getting it to conform to the shape of the mould



Then the battery was too tight booo



Itís too rough for my liking so I think I will look at fabricating it out of steel using this for measurement and as a guide

Oh well fly out tomorrow so Iíll have 6 weeks to conjure up a new method

Looks like a good guide for the steel attempt. Live and learn my friend.

Finally found some good photos for the dampner mount, a little more involved than we had first anticipated.
