I laid down another layer of fiberglass on the headlight and sanded it down again. Then I threw a coat of cheap primer on it to see the pinholes and unlevel surfaces. It looks pretty good, going to need to do a skim coat of filler and knock that down and it should be good.




Also got my bar end mirror in the mail. I'm just using one of the Third Eye bike mirrors.

I was test fitting all the coolant pipes onto the engine and noticed a problem. With the coolant pipes on, the T for the oil mod lines is in a place so that the connector for the front heads oil mod line is blocked by the coolant pipe.


So, I cut another piece of hose and made a new line for the rear head that was 1.5" longer, so it moved the T further towards the side of the engine, giving me room to run the line under the coolant pipe. The braided line is rubbing on the coolant pipe a little bit, so before I assemble it for the final time I'm going to put some heatshrink on the braided line where the pipe is so it won't rub.



Since I put that extra 1.5" in the line, it gave me more slack on the main line from the oil gallery so I can get it around the front motor mount easier, without so much rubbing.


I also cleaned up the clutch side cover a bit. The paint was dull and just didn't look good, and the bare aluminum parts were oxidized. So, I took some sandpaper and S100 to it and now it looks just like new.
Before:

After:


I started cleaning up the rest of the gasket surfaces on the engine so I can get this thing reassembled soon. I also have been replacing all the seals that I can and cleaning it up along the way.

Got a little bit done this morning. I got my gear indicator housing loaded up with the leds and mounted it onto the tach.


I also got the frame and swingarm completely stripped down so that I can get it all painted up tomorrow.

Got some more parts painted. I got the frame, subframe / main coolant pipe and swingarm painted. I did them all with a satin black paint. It is less glossy in person, more of a satin than gloss.

+1 on satin black, I love that color. You should definitely recognize the oil mod, pretty much the same engine as yours, got the parts from the same store, and hell, I even used your thread as a guide when making mine.

I managed to get the swingarm and rear suspension bolted up and torqued down. I cleaned everything up before I bolted it down, so the back end is ready to go. I mounted the rear wheels so I could bounce the rear and make sure everything was working, which it is.


After I had that all mounted, I decided to mock up the triples, forks, front wheel, headlight bucket, clipons, gas tank and one caliper just to get a good idea of how everything is going to look together. I'm really liking it.




I haven't gotten a ton done this week because of my other project that I just started. I started to do a quad-HID projector retrofit for my 00 Eclipse. I bought all of the parts with a little extra money I had from selling the overpriced cold air intake that came on my car and buying a short ram intake for a lot less. I couldn't stand having all the parts lying around so I started the retrofit. I'm using a pair of clear lense aftermarket projectors which I'm modifying the cutoff shields and color modding them which will be a low-beam / fog light and a pair of Infinity G35 bixenon projectors with a pair of replica FX clear lenses and being color modded. They're going to be mounted in a pair of aftermarket headlight housings which already have a shroud with two circular cutouts which I mounted the projectors to aim through. Here's a couple of pictures just because.

I just started reading up on HID planet. I'm glad to see that you did a 7" round with a bi-xenon projector.

Can you get pictures of the light pattern in the bike housing? looking hella awesome pun not intended
