The mould turned out ok ,but I was too mean with the PVA or forgot to apply it to one side any how I wrecked the paint on the tail piece. The owner was not bothered and asked if I would make him one from my mould. The blue one is for him.There was some bubbling of the gel coat in one place I think it was to thin but will talk to a local who has been doing this stuff for years to find the fix.
The next one out of the mould will be for the 850 and will be wider and not have gel coat as I want to lay the seat pan up to it. 20230514_164651.jpg20230514_164700.jpg20230514_164711.jpg

I have been side tracked a bit working on the RD ignition but was able to make the rear exhaust bracket. It needs welding at the bends but I am out of gas at the present. I also have started making the RHS foot peg hanger rear brake master cylinder mount. Wish I had a band saw.
Slowly making progress but another interesting project is looming so this will go on the back burner for a while. As Jim says the 850 will glare at me when I go in the shed.
