New airbox.

Postby adithorp » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:42 am

Rather than completely hijack peters thread I thought I'd post more update pictures here.

The remains of the temporary airbox. Although the long cut to the corner I did to access a stuck screw there's plenty of other cracks (Inc under the gaffer)...

Latest pictures with just final trim of the top edges and securing screw holes to drill... And cut a hole in the bonnet!

The lid didn't come out of the mold looking too good so it got a couple of coats of resin brushed on and then lots of rubbing down and it's looking ok now... Well the bit that'll show is.

Start small and make it bigger (said the actress to the bishop), scary but worked for me :!:

What method did you use? Is it wet lay?

Yes it's just wet lay.

Got the hole cut. I had to make it with a gap at the back otherwise it was a pain to open the bonnet. Shame but it had to be or it'd be a 2man job to open.

Just need to test drive now.

Probably looks better in photos than reality.
