Dont get me wrong, still did all the above, Bike has always been primary mode of transportation, lcp in my pocket and beer after work:) lol
Who I am has not changed, what I do has:)
Took this pic a few months ago and kinda chuckled, didnt figure on ever posting it however its time to go for it:)
Now that we understand each other :)
The wood box below is the begining of what will be a fiberglass lite weight trailer.
The process begins with building a "plug"
The plug is an exact copy of what you want the end result to look like.
Many ways to build the plug, I just choose wood and body filler.
We will see how it turns out:)
Have added the top lip:)
Will have rounded corners also, btw, hard ass work lol
So now that the box is built, it has to be perfectly flat, so putting on skim layer of body filler:)
Ok, you get the idea lol
So this is closer to the look
Now a shinny finish is the next goal, free of blemishes:)
Im pretty much done in my opinion, however im thinking a test corner is next... Just to verify its going to be free of any blemishes:)
This is the corner im thinking
Masking off the corner, this has been hand waxed 10 times,
Not sure if you have ever hand waxed but its hard ass work, I usually carry a 45 on my hip and 380 in my pocket, however after the sanding and waxing over the last couple months I now pack 2 more guns lol
Thats some funny stuff lol
Anyways back to the box lol
Have the corner masked off ;)
Im just using some yellow as the test, will be black when done:)
Went on great!!!
Adding couple layers of fiberglass, figure will be good practice, remember, I have never done anything like this before lol
Watched EVERY you tube video, hundreds of hours watching them, not sure why I even have netflix lol
Built a table to hold the fiberglass
There it is :)
It was GREAT practice:)!!!
Have to wait till next day to know if worked? Beer time lol
Worked out awesome!!
So I got some overspray on the rest of box, so get to start all over on the hand waxing, I look at it as an opportunity to improve them guns lol
I have quickly built a chart to remember how many layers of wax..
That took all day!!!
But this is the result:)
Well this has been my world fellow riders, couple more weeks and look forward to having on the road:)
So on to riding news, I finally got in my first day of riding!! Did right at 500 miles, what a wonderful relaxing day, left my phone in the saddle bag, refused to look at it all day lol
This pic is my ugly mug after lol
Yes the hair has become a challenge, hits me in the eyes when riding, figured out a rubber band is a handy little invention:)
