Did some work on pulling the massive dent out of the gas tank



It took three days, lots of frustration and a couple of broken dent pullers. I finally was able to pop the rest of the dent out with compressed air



It's still got a minor dent but that will pull easy.

Shiny and fdup were right. The oil cooler lines and t stat look good once the body work is on

The gel coat on the covers wound up bubbling up. I am out of gel so I had to order more. Once it gets here I will try again. The mold for the chain guard came out perfectly though. I have to do some trimming before I can lay up any carbon. Hopefully get some time this weekend to get it layed up.

Picture less update time

So I've been thinking about the chain guard and have decided to scrap the mold. Not because it isn't a good mold and won't work but because it's so narrow it is hard to get the resin spread evenly. Instead I will be doing an overlay. This way it will still be a carbon part but should be much easier to do. I figured I would wax the chain guard and then a few coats of pva just like if I was making a mold and the carbon should pop right off.

Also, I have worked out my front fender. I found a zrx400 front fender on eBay. It has a nice profile and is made for a 17 inch wheel. The only issue I might have is that the zrx400 runs a 110 width tire. Worse case is that I'll have to widen the fender a bit

Got some work done.

I started on the fender first. It had some small damage that I had to fix before it was ready to be molded. I reinforced the back of the fender where the cracks were before I tried to fill them.



Once that was sanded smooth I took 400 grit to the entire fender to get a consistent smooth finish.



Then a couple of coats of was and PVA



Then some gel coat



And there it sits till the gel coat cures. Once it does I will lay some glass

Also layed up some carbon





And moved my ignition to right under the tank

Got some glass layed yesterday



Also had to make sure it still ran. Don't mind the rust. There is no telling how long that exhaust sat before I bought it

Picked up a couple of things over the weekend. Got the ELR decals ordered. Also ordered everything I was running out of for the paint. Finally bought what I needed to relocate the front tank mounts and some nice and shiny shock nuts.

I did get some work done this weekend. I finally got the front mounts for the tank sorted. They aren't perfect but they hold the tank solid. Also got the speed sensor mounted. I started working on the carbon fender but got as far as layering the PVA on the mold before it got a bit too chilly so I will try again this evening. Still along way to go and with recent developments I don't know if I am going to have the time to finish it

I hope this fender comes out good because that was a major pain in the ass to lay up
