02-17-2012 09:27 PM Radiator Cover Continued
Photo 1, radiator fan cover painted in finish coat.
Photo 2, Front cover with all the shiny pieces added.
Photo 3, the overflow tank added couldn't go past this I love all things chromed.
Photo 4, Moto-Meter in all its glory
Photo 5 & 6 Cover installed to the radiator far better than the fiberglass one I first had. This should solve the comment made a few months ago, your not leaving the radiator like that are you, what do you think Wayne looking better.

Radiator cover final undercoat applied
Photo 1 & 2, fitted the cover to the radiator to mark out the center to fit the shiny pieces.
Photo 3 & 4, Shiny pieces added, as I want to have this working an Ali disc will need to be machined to transfer the heat to the Moto-Meter, it wonít be correct but close, as there should be no air flow over the top of the radiator.
Photo 5, painted the core black not sure if I like it but itís too late now.
Photo 6, Finish coat applied.

02-16-2012 10:05 PM Radiator cover continued
After many hours of body filling & sanding, I finally spoke to a panel beater to see if they could lend a few words of wisdom to getting a good finish. He told me to purchase some spray putty and this would take out all the blemishes from the body filler, he was correct after a few coats as seen in the photos it came out quite good one more coat of undercoat then onto the final coat. I canít go past adding a little bling to everything so Speedway Motors came to mind once again, purchased a chromed wing & Boyce Junior Motometer.

02-10-2012 12:50 AM Radiator Fan cover
Designed the fan cover on CAD
Photo 1. Using 1.5 mm plate I cut all the pieces out.
Photo 2. Marked out the center plate then cut the circular hole out.
Photo 3. All four sides tack welded together & fitted to radiator to ensure it did fit.
Photo 4. Center section tack welded to the side frame.
Photo 5. Fan installed to the cover & installed to see that this also fitted.
Photo 6. The gap between the motor & fan is very tight, I should be able to get 1 inch clearance by the
time move everything around this should be enough.

02-05-2012 01:09 AM Window screen supports
I purchased two pieces of ĹĒ squared steel, I clamped the middle onto my engine lifter & using 2 x 12Ē shifter twisted half of the bar 360 degrees clockwise. Then I did the same to the other side to make a one of a kind window spiral support bar, no doubt someone has already done this but I havenít seen any as yet. Fabricated one end to fit on the light stands & the other to fit the top of the window support pillar.
