Next I moved on to the tail cowl. It has to house the battery, which is large due to keeping the electric start. For this I chose to make a wire form buck. Not a great pic of t, but you get the idea. Next more aluminum was shaped.

After the cowl pieces were welded a flange was turned to add strength, a seat pan was bent and everything welded up.

Next I started on the under-tail details. A tight fit aluminum panel with a rubber seal will make up the battery tray. It will be bolted to the frame separate from the cowl so the cowl can be lifted off the battery for servicing. Another panel creates an area between the frame tubing for wiring/components. (Not the final hardware)

Bro I am right there w you.  Sure I enjoy going for a ride.  However, I leap out of bed in the mornings if thereís work to be done. 
I am in awe of the work you and some others are doing.  Sometimes Iím surprised you all allow me to be here at all.

Thanks man, there are some very talented guys on here. Iím just a hack that likes working metal.

Are you going to stiffen up the cradle so it's not a rubber cow anymore?  Curious if that will get even worse (or better) now that it's a mono shock. Considering where your top mount is, I don't have as high of hopes.
