NICE BiG SEAT!!!

 

I used Black Felt to cover the Quad Seat. I carefully cut a little bit at a time untill I got a Good Fit!
Sometimes I use old Mouse Pads for work surfaces. It is pretty easy on painted pieces...

I sprayed glue on the back of the Felt and attached it to the seat back!

EXTENDING THE BARS!!!

 

I tried to make a few handlebars for the Quad, but they were pretty funky. So I decided to make Extentions rather than a new set of Bars.

I started with 3/32" plastic tubing and brass rod. I cut the Tubing and then cut the Rod a little longer. Then I pushed the Rod into the Tubing...

I removed the chrome from the stock Bars. After a little Fitting and Trimming the Extentions fit right inside the Bars!

I bent the bars back a little at the ends to make the angle of the Bars just right!

BARS & FORKS!!!

 

I opened the front of the frame and slipped the Forks in, then I glued it together. I used a Rear Wheel & Tire on the front so I had to remove the Fender Mounts from the Forks for clearence.

I accidentally broke one of the two Pins off the top of the Forks as shown in the photo, so I broke the other one off too. I drilled a hole in each of these two spots for the Handlebars. It would have been easier to do before mounting the Forks...


  DSCN0931Q_zps0fc76f39.jpg


The brass rods fit right in the holes. Here are the Handlebars in place!

I haven't checked in on this for awhile and I figured you were getting close to being finished , and I'm not dissappointed .  The engine and exhaust look great and the forks and fat tire look great out front !

  I'll be watching for the finished photos .

QUAD'S DONE!!!

 

Everything is glued in place now. Finished up all of the last details and applied the Flame Decals from the Torch Kit.
I looked through my collection for "QUAD" Decals and couldn't find any...

 

So yesterday I took a break from the Quad and started a new project...the Doner Kit is the Olds Aerotech. I did a lot of Cutting, Fitting, Sanding, More Chopping, More Fitting and Sanding. I got a Real Good start on my new project. Then today I looked on the bottom of the box and there are some decals, I turn over the Aerotech Decal Sheet and there are 2 "QUAD" Decals!

I'M HAPPY NOW!!!

 

Photos of the Finished QUAD will be posted soon... B)
