one more mock up, I would change the black here with that snakeskin tank stuff. brake lines, clutch master, and caliper spacers are the only things holding this back from a ride.
What material did you use to make the filler panel at the bottom of the tank? I'm attempting to make one out of aluminium, but am not 100% pleased with it at this point...
It's just a good looking mock up made out of balsa like foam board I got at the art supply house and painted red. My plan is to use Kydex which is a plastic formable material that you heat up and it will mold to your negative.
Ah, ok, thanks for the info. Would you be willing to make a second one, or mail some Kydex over here, as I'm not sure that I can find it where I live in Germany. I do have a U.S. mailing address, so shipping won't be expensive, and I can easily paypal you. Thanks again!
I don't think I will use the Kydex material, it turns out it has to be held on the negative mold with pressure and my negative is made out of bookbinders cardboard so unless I make a plaster of paris base for the negative it won't stand up to the pressure needed to mold the Kydex. I think I will use fiber glass as a backing and bondo to smooth the front.
