I spent all day Sunday cutting up fabric (there's a lot more pieces than it looks like). The carbon fiber cut good but the carbon/kevlar was a pain. The Titanium Fiscars are the way to go, regular scissors wouldn't even begin to cut it. http://www2.fiskars.com/Crafting/Pro...s#.VL3osyx7SAk



Monday was a paid day off so I started on the chaincase side and managed to finish it. The carbon/kevlar is pretty flexible so I used it for the first layer. For the second layer I used carbon fiber, and for the third and final layer I used carbon/kevlar again so the blue would be visible. The entire panel is a minimum of 3 layers, and with multiple overlapping, the stressed areas such as around the brake caliper and especially in front of the oil tank are 4-5 layers. Pretty time consuming but I got it to follow all the indents in the subframe and the shape of the chaincase, ect. With the fit being so tight I'm anticipating only needing a few fasteners to hold it together. Tomorrow after work I'll pop this side off and lay up the clutch side. It looks better in person and once I eventually get around to sanding the seams and applying another coat of resin the seams should be less noticeable.



It's hard to tell in the pics because of the poor lighting, but the blue really stands out as soon as it's in natural light outside.

Thumbs up

this this is awesome. I've been following this build for years and it just keeps getting cooler. Lots of work but I suspect it will be worth it

Been slacking but I got the clutch side layed up today.


The oil tank side panel is about 3.65 lbs right now. Heavier than I was hoping for but stronger as well, way stronger.

Been away for a long time. I lost interest in the sled in the midst of finishing & moving into my house, getting married, and stretching the frame on my Ranger 6x6 to run 31's so that ate up all my free time. But I'm back and working on the sled again and it feels really good.



Here is the oil tank side 100% done except for the final coat of resin which I'll do at the same time I do the clutch side. The fit is so good I could probably run it without fasteners and I think it would stay in place. Obviously I won't do that, but I'm super happy with how it turned out.

I just got the clutch side off yesterday and trimmed up today. It still needs to be sanded and reinforced in a few places before it'll see the final coat. Fit is just as good as the other side.

Nice work as always. Be nice to finally see this on the snow. If we get any snow this year that is!
