I got my caliper rebuild kit from Powerhouse - contains seals, stainless steel pistons, stainless bleed nipples, rubber grommets and red rubber grease, and got both calipers rebuilt and back on the bike, but not bolted up and bled yet as I'm waiting until my new race pads arrive...

The Hornet nose cone has had a treat too - the class I plan to race in demands a numberboard of a set colour, so that has to be done, and I marked out the areea with fineline tape, masked off the rest and sprayed on the yellow.
That area was then mased over, and the rest uncovered, before some Volvo Grey (they only dark grey I could find that wasn't a metallic) was laid on, and then the masking was all taken off and a couple of coats of acquer applied.
It's not a bad job, for me, not professional but there's no reactions or orange peel, and with a bit of fine sanding and some polish it should be okay I guess.

Indeed Yan. I'm starting to get paranoid that some pesky wee fucker is breaking into the garage at night and robbing stuff that I'll need the very next day.

Not much happened, aside from getting the wiring sorted so it now runs no ignition key - kill switch is all that turns it on/off - no lights with the exception of a rear rain light etc, all undertaken by the wonderful Vizman, artist, tattooist and wiring magician...

Sweet FA been done, apart from sneaking up on it and getting it started one day last week. brum brum.
Now have some loominum to make up a battery box, and got a fibreglass front mudguard that needs some brackets making, just as soon as I can find some time that isn't taken up by work...

Having fucked about with the poxy bit of seat foam that I got with the tail unit, which was only 10mm thick, I decided that I needed thicker foam so bought some 20mm thick that had the added bonus of having a peel-off sticky backing. Cut to the right shape using a cheapo hole saw and a stanley blade, and then roughly shaped with a flap wheel in the grinder and then some sandpaper, it's not perfect but it is a race bike... if I spent hours making it perfect you can guarantee that I'll spill acetone on it.
I also had a look at the (out of shape) front mudguard that I want to fit, which'll need some brackets...
