    Howdo!!

    Here's a few more pics of the bike (We all love pics!!) These are the MWR panel filter (Compared against the standard K&N)

    I'm utilising an ST3 airbox on the bike, however the front intake seemed to be covered quite a lot which led to the MWR - which covers the whole surface area (Quite loud at higher revs but definitely added some of the extra power )Intention is to make a PUK and try and fabricate a carbon box, won't be pretty - more functional.

    More shiny pics to follow!

    The TB's are raised on the mould - wish I had done them flat (did for all the other holes ), so got the dremel out and tapered the edges and just some gel coat over the top. Not to bothered on the finish here just didn't want this as a sticking point in the mould.

    I've made some card board templates & cut the carbon sheet to match (As best as possible) gonna also give the pigment a miss this time as I'm inpatient as want it done this weekend, just so I can get me anger issues out the way when I throw it all in the bin

    Hi Paul it's Grandad...
    Are you going to vacuum it into the mould?
    IME it's very hard to get carbon cloth into the tight corners/shapes unless you do.
    Strange that you should mention pigment, I found that when I added pigment to the epoxy it took days to cure fully.
    By the way the mould looks quite professional in the pic's.
    Both Stevie B and I have had some experience with GRP etc, we've both worked in this field at some time in the past.
    I was the chargehand/pattern (mould) maker of a GRP dept' back in the 70's and have made most of the parts for my own bikes over the years.
    I made all of the bodywork on my old 900SS Bevel that's in your garage.

    Hi Pabs if you cannot vac bag it
    Give a bit othought how you cut your cloth
    Carbon weave tends to curve easier one way than the other ,won't be as pretty but it will work better as a moulding
    Regards Steve B
    Ps are you using a gel coat ? A wash of resin will do if not, let it tack ,then lay up
