Yeah yeah yeah, I know  ;)  and I just couldn't hold back on the headlight for the bike.  I built some crazy one off dual projector bixenon headlights for the green car there and my suv has a bixenon retrofit as well.  I couldn't really tell myself "no" on this one either.

are you going to smooth the bucket out or will it always be textured like that?

I'm in the process of doing the rest of the bodywork now to make it fully smooth.  I'll basecoat/clearcoat it black after that.

I bodyworked and primed the headlight, I'm just waiting a little while til I need to shoot some other parts to paint it.  In the meantime I've been working on the seat cushion and i welded on a battery tray and taillight mount- not the prettiest things but whatever.  I hit the rear half of the frame with epoxy for now.  I'll powdercoat it when I pull the motor.  This paint does oxidize a bit so hopefully it'll blend in with the factory semi gloss in a few weeks.

The 3D printer is awesome and the headlight looks well executed. Great job so far. Love the unique idea  :)



...but go get some non-hacked-up spark plug wires  :o

Yeah, I really should.  But this was a cheap fix vs. my only other option which would be replacing the coils all together.   I got the tailsection all trimmed up and it looks really sweet with the taillight if I do say so myself. 


With everything crammed in there- looks okay for spaghetti.  I'll be replacing the fuseholder which is just dangling there with something better/buss fuses. 







the stuff under the battery is foam drawer liner.  Need to replace that with rubber sheet LOL.

Just finished up the seat cushion.  Turned out way cool, especially since this was my first time doing anything like this!  Need to grab some velcro to get it to sit down all the way















I ordered some headlight ears and once they get here the headlight should be going on.

Seat pad looks great.... I've got mine out to the upholstery shop right now... If mine turns out at least that decent... I'll be happy. (Though I've got something special requested for mine if he can pull it off...)
