I now know why these pro builders like to work on the same bikes. Makes lifer easier. Ya i need it done by may 15th if I can. Save some final touches and graphics. 

Cleaned up the tank which will also double as a mount.

The hardest part of the subframe done. Getting the first frame tabs welded for the two poles and being true and level. This is why the measuring is so important.  So the last pic the level is nice and green and the front of the seat is nice and flush t the tank. :-)

Nicely done with the tabs and tank, on my tank I bended over all the welds towards the tunnel first before welding.
This makes it possible to use less putty to smoothen , but I guess you could even let the seam like this?

Thanks man. Ya i needed the extra length of the tank welds to meet up to the seat properly. The longer the tank the lower the seat will be and this bike is being designed for a slightly lower seat height than average if I can help it.

I have bondo and long hair fiberglass putty. Which would be better to smooth out the tank transition. I was thinking of using the the long hair to fill the big gaps then bondo to get it smooth.
