I like that headlight much more better with the gauges over it

Big difference, isn't it?  I think it was the size and the bulbous shape out in space that made it look so out of place.  Once the fender goes back on, hopefully it makes even more sense.  A completed seat should balance all that out, too.

That delrin cup is a righteous idea.
 
And for what it's worth, I like the big headlight.

 Irk... I'm really diggin the desert sled thing man.. I have been wanting to build one for a few years now.. I have a little XL100 that is on deck for that type of build maybe next winter.
   That being said.. I like the alignment of the rear fender, and I like that you molded the pan for the seat the way you did. So lotta hubbub about the Headlight... did you ever think of messing with two  5or6 inch LED buckets mounted side by side? That's right up the desert sled alley.

Next step is to carve a master for the seat cushion. I carved it from insulation foam. Coated the foam in Epsilon, then skimmed with Dynalite. Next, Iíll make a mold of this master...

Looks good and should be comfy with the right foam.

Mold is made. Iím a ceramicist, so I have tons of plaster and plaster is cheap. Itís easy to clean up and itís non-toxic. Plus, it sets in an hour or less so you can make a mold in under 4 hours. I didnít use a box, because I wanted to keep the mold lighter and to use less material. So I used a slump process which requires you to let the plaster set up until itís like yogurt. Then you squeegee it into a mound over the form until it hardens. The plaster will get sealed with some stuff called Super Seal then coated with a mold release.

Subframe, side covers and fender go back to stock.  Maybe now I can paint it without fear of undoing...

I just wanted to remind you of the irony of this post
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.
