you could make a fiberglass piece that covers it to go with the tail you have, or with (as suggested) a smaller tail. start cutting out some cardboard to get an idea of the piece you want to make, then cut it outta foam, then do your glass.

I ordered a wire knife and some filler made specifically for extruded polystyrene. I plan on blocking together the foam and shaping a one-off tail. I tried to find a tail that I liked better than the GSXR's and nothing seemed to really satisfy. So, I have another project on top of wiring, engine rebuild, custom exhaust, paint/powedercoat, etc... I have been researching the hell out of ways to make a plug, then a mold and then the final tail. I will post up pics when I get everything in and start the process. In the mean time, I am trying to sort the wiring to see what I can chop and what I can keep.

The fucking ongoing saga continues...

Weathered the first round of pink slips this year and, with the wedding really close (but paid for), I got to messing with the tail... finally.

Some of you will recognize where this came from but I am gonna try and use the GSXR race tail to make a splash mold, then modify the plug I'll make from that.

Nota Bene: I SUCK at fabrication, so if you choose to copy this, god help you.


So...

First thing was to set the race tail up for a lip to glass up against. I taped out a midline to help locate the template to make a melamine rail.

Tape-


The paper template:




Using the paper template I cut out the rigid rail form a piece of melamine:



Then, I hot glued the melamine into place and stuffed modeling clay into the gaps.


Used a razor knife to trim the excess and the waxed the shit out of it with release wax. Put on Partall Mold Release Liquid and then let it dry. That's where I am right now:



I will lay glass tonight and we'll see how this butcher job works tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday.

The overall plan is to shave the sides to be narrower, cut off a portion of the rear, shape the rear end to take a stock TL tail light, and resolve the lines/mounting points with the sub. If I completely fuck this up, I'll go to foam and try that. But I wanted to give this a try just to see if I could do it.

Idea is not mine, so can't claim to be clever myself. Even with the detailed thread I researched, there's no substitute for actual experience. Which I am, unfortunately, finding out. While in the midst of laying in pieces, I came to the conclusion that I should have made some newspaper patterns for the pieces involved in the layup. Not for looks or anything, but simply for ease of application. I WILL do it for the plug and final piece for sure.

Using West Systems products - really good shit compared to the crap I used last time.

Layup is mostly complete and curing. Will post up progress pics when I pop the mold off.



While it dries, enjoy (or not) the three little ladies that my pops gave me.

Not sure of the exact years, but all 60's models.

LOTS of extra parts, including an extra engine, extra frame, and a set of new pistons.



EDIT: checked piece this morning. Cured up well, but I'll need to add a layer or two in a couple of places. The slow hardener I used worked well for me because I am still not very competent with working fiberglass. It should be ready to come off the part this afternoon when I get home (hope I have time).
