Front Panel work:
unsure on what the tool was called that was used to cut this, but it did a pretty good job. it did need some heavy sanding afterwards.
trash left over
mounted back to the empty case (still not finished yet)
more images of my vision (note that the grills will not be mounted as the photo shows, they will be turned 45 degrees once the diamond plate has been cut and mounted)
I was really happy with the new height of the nut covers
next job is to cut the diamond plate to proper sizing, and get some nice round holes in it.
I also need a light sanding done on the front panel, then prime it and paint it harley orange (not officially harley orange, but as close as i can get) and then clear coat it.
as you can see from the above photos, I may need to putty up some "opps" on the front panel near the right edge and another spot, not sure how ima do that just yet.
enjoy for now, will update prolly tomorrow with more
