I'm buzzing right now, I dunno if it was the noise or the sparks from the angel grinder or what!

Anyways, I woke up this morning and here's what I've been up to for the last few hours on my first day of 4 months of holidays!!!

I just trimmed the bulge down to size and marked on the bonnet were to cut.

A guy I work with has a perspex window on his bonnet, this photo just reminded me and I thought I'd share.

Anyone wanna buy my bike?


The tabs are left there so that I have somewhere to sickaflex the bulge to. They'll be cut down shortly. Then I'm going to fibreglass it in place and do lotsa sanding!

Stay tuned for more... Going to have breakfast now then I'll get back into it!

O, and I better give EDXRSW a plug, as he supplied the bulge - $100.00 plus postage (s**t load cheaper than AWC)!!!

I'm considering possibly fitting them next to the bulge, I dunno I'm iffy about it....
Some guy on FordForums has done it:

Anyways, here's it drying after I've sikaflexed it in place:

I've got 5 self drillers holding it in place too. After I've fibreglassed it in place, on the top, and tehn when I remove the bonnet to paint I'll fibreglass it in place underneath to, after that I'll remove the screws as they look tacky.[/img]

i was under the impression that they need a lip under them to sit in and bolt through that. hard to explain, i'll draw a little paint diagram ;)

looking good - also its good to see you have cut the bonnet out instead of just putting it ontop!! it comes out smoother if you do it the way your doing it - also you should add some air vents at the back of the bulge instead of the xr ones - just a suggestion!!

just make sure you fibreglass back over the top join between the bulge and the steel bonnet otherwize your filler will crack.

No worries.
Yeah I plan to. I've actually fibreglassed the sides now, but run out of resin! Got a s**t load of sanding to do now but!

Does fibreglass corode/rust steel?
