got all the frame head finished yesterday, naps hat on all cleaned up and ready to fit floor pans.






had a bloody stupid accident whilst out the unit, thanks to gungey for taking me to hospital.

I was cleaning up the rear torsion bar housings and the grinder dug in and kicked back into my face Mad Mad Mad

i have now got a fat lip (much bigger than carls), and 5 stiches in my face courtesy of weston genral hospital..

Started back after trashing my face and thought better get back on with the floor pan.

got the o/s/ floor pan in, all the pedal mounts and brakets.
tacked in the n/s/floor pan, as want to try the body on to make sure it all fits before fully welding in the n/s/pan.

all pans plug welded and then welds ground down.
once other pan is in off to get blasted to clean up the underneath of the spine and rear horns.

the pans fit pretty good,got to move seat runner on n/s pan as welded in wrong place.

but they are loads better than the igp pans i fitted the first time, due to fit and thickness of the metal.


would have liked to fit the grey pans but at 270-00 per side seems a bit much to me.

out the unit last night, with gungey, got the front inspection cover hole converted, as the new framehead came with a round hole and 67 was a rectangle hole, so cut old one out and graffted into new frame head.

picked up my exhaust from argos racing cycles today as they stove enamalled the heat excangers and exhaust box.

the enamal should be good for a few hundred degrees, they said it won't burn off.

nice and shiny now in grey.
