    I assemble some parts of the fairing to realize

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I do not exclude adding other parts in acrylic to accentuate the line of the yaiba

    [​IMG]

    I proceed with the construction of the upper aerators

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then I will insert the slats inside painted in anthracite gray, creating a contrast with the metallic red

    [​IMG]

    is time to paint some parts, the weather is not favorable, it rains ... but I have to go on

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    provisional assembly of fan grill

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have to calculate the dimensions for the cables inside even if it seems absurd there is little space.

    silver finish on some parts

    step back but necessary, I realized that I don't like the side panels anymore they are too protruding and from double pega it widens the internal space a lot and since the temple tightens .....
    I decide to do them again ... youppyeee !!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    this is the panel ..

    [​IMG]

    proceed with the realization of the internal slats to emulate the air vents.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I calculate the thicknesses of the acrylic elements well, i.e. 2 mm for the slats and 4 mm for the thicknesses, everything must fit together perfectly otherwise it's a mess.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I glue everything ..

    [​IMG]

    it is always annoying to redo pieces and you lose a lot of time especially if you have to do them by hand like me but the result pays off in the end .. it had to be done!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    once completed, the slightly recessed panels (5MM) will be cut in perfect shape to give a depth effect.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    that's fine!

    [​IMG]

    as we have already understood this project even if it started with a very specific idea is a work in progress, some unforeseen parts are realized along the way as in this passage.

    I realize that although the fairing is beautiful it is flat, I prepare other external panels that attach to the existing panels to give a depth effect that was missing, these panels will join those already made for the external ones with air vents made previously.

    I use the usual procedure, all by hand, cardboard template, study of the measurements, cut with a manual hacksaw and refinish 80 gr sandpaper for smoothing and 220 gr for finishing. obviously all the panels are unique the measures are taken side by side, because this mod is made entirely by hand and the individual pieces are not mirrored.

    [​IMG]

    use of two-component fiberglass putty to close the cracks generated by the bending.

    [​IMG]

    t's time to place them to take measurements for the fixing holes. at first glance I see that they will still need to be finished.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    perfection is not of this world but let's try to get as close as possible .. :)

    You need to use a bike lift. No one off-forum would know it's a computer at this point. :D

    When a problem is created, the solution is a must, but sometimes it happens that the ripiuego proves to be better than the initial idea, as in this case. The fan of the 200 mm coolermaster takes up a lot of space on the back and therefore I don't know where to fix the controller what remains is right, the cables, so how to do? I lack space so I have to create it ... the ek waterblocks controller (I know it has software problems and its sale has been suspended, so we look forward to the new release ...) I place it on a low, I create a crankcase to emulate the oil pan of the motorcycle, we will apply finishing wear and logos at the end, since it needs specific measures I build it from scratch.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I fix everything with glue and finish with fiberglass stucco to consolidate everything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and here it is, primer coats, grouting with metal filler, and when the surface is good enough and smooth anthracite gray coat

    [​IMG]

    I will also pierce the lower fairing.

    [​IMG]

    he casing will be hooked from below and will contain the controller and the related rgb and fan power cables ...
