FENDER BLENDING!!!


I cut 2 pieces of plastic and fit them in at the fronts of the Fenders...

Then I cut 4 pieces of plastic to fit between the rear of the Fenders and the Body. I made them oversize so I could carve them to shape.

Here it is after some trimming and sanding...

FOUR BiG ONES!!!

 

I carved out a half round shape in the rear deck and opened up this BiG Hole...

I cut 4 lengths of aluminum tubing, cleaned them up and glued them together.

Next I used a round file and made room for all 4 of the Pipes to come through!

Ira,

 

Great work as always.

 

I would suggest that where the exhaust comes out you thin the lip of the body instead of the notch for the outside exhausts. 

 

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments Bob!

 

Yeah, I filled the two body holes on the sides of the pipes and I will probably "thin the lip" too... B)

CUTTING A HOLE...

 

I found an inner wheel that will be a perfect housing for my Frenched Taillight! So I traced it on the back of the Quad...


DSCN0658Q_zps35c111ec.jpg

 

I opened the hole with an X-Acto #11 Blade, then increased its size with a reamer and last, I used the Dremel Tool for the final shape.


 DSCN0660Q_zpsd1dbaae0.jpg


I positioned the wheel in as far as I could and then glued it in place.


DSCN0662Q_zpsfc4e3594.jpg


Here it is with a little putty around the edges...

GETTIN' SMOOTH...

 

I started Smoothing out the Frame a little more by adding putty to the frame tube, behind the gas tank position.


DSCN0676Q_zps3323a856.jpg


A little more sanding...


DSCN0681Q_zpsd578cb73.jpg


Then I cut a piece of sheet plastic to fill in the area under the seat and glued it in place. Then I sanded it a little more...
