Yeah it’s a monsteR! I like the holes in the side pretty neat. AlehhhX! Slathering glass strips ran out of resin.. it’s built up with about 6 layers of cloth so far.

Easy to shred off the extra and shape with 60 grit. I packed a bunch of strips in between the bars and fender laying in a zig zag pattern. Still needs about 10 layers built up to over fill, then I’ll plane it off flat with, I’ll try the belt sander.

I used fiberglass on on a tank once. It looked perfect! Then about 2 days after I paired it I was like shit what is that bubble! sure enough the fiber glass pipes clean off the metal! I hope you don’t have the same luck. I was super butthurt.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

That happened to me twice. It sucks! Glad u mentioned it I have a caulk gun of epoxy resin I’ll skim the top coat and edges. It’ll be sealed over with car paint, but that polyester resin turns to gum under oil and gas. Nice and solid today!

The painting dude told me to glass the weld joints so my flux core don’t pop it up. That’s for sheetmetal tho I think, where a patched car door could flex with temperature change, or putting body filler on too thick fucks up paint.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Ana L. of the Aurora Roras /

Glad I got a minute to fill this pipe and sleeve diameter differences. Wrapped around a bunch of times. yeah, the best tank so far, after welding and grinding, I painted the joints with jbweld.

Got out the epoxy stash. Anchoring gel, for glueing metal to concrete. Saturate a glass sheet with this shit. :)

Etch primer guide coat,, ehh keep sanding

The fender sides filled up to the strut worked out good. Like 12 sheet layers stacked up then planed off flush with the flat bar.

The fender is from 3 bikes. The bottom piece was a Harley-Davidson front fender, the middle piece is from a schwinn chopper bicycle and the top piece I cut the middle and skinnied it up, was from a Chinese motorcycle. Close enuff hahaa!

Check out my moped buddy Rick’ems glass concoction, fuckers trying to out do my bike!

I got him this time. Check it tho, this fuxtik built a damn body kit all the way around using cardboard and tape. It’s like 7 layers thick u can stand on it. Fuuuck ton of work

Held on with fasteners. They didn’t have a body kit for the car so he got something he liked, a front bumper cover and valance, glassed it in covering where the headlights used to be. Pretty neat Ricky! Not a moped tho dickhead.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

That was a good ideaR switching over to epoxy, just in time too. I mixed the parts together then sloshed some acetone into the batch. Heck yeah it went on like pancake batter with a brush. Layed the last piece over the whole thing then brushed on more to fill it in. Telling by the brush I used bristles hardened already.

Cures in 4 hours solid. I bashed it with a hammer to test, it’s badass! Like heavy carbon fiber hard. Then I layed strips over the weld joints and off to the side to transition the pipe thicknesses. Shave this pile, it has cured all night then 3 or 4 more layers by the time it’s full.

The tube of epoxy is 6 years old, part of the caulking tube nozzle broke. Should I JBweld it?

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Ana L. of the Aurora Roras /

Found more information on the juice. Says 3 year shelf life hahaa! It came from the local Nu-Way concrete store a couple miles away. Prolly expensive af, but dude epoxy for days.

It sands easy enuff with 60 grit shredding the off all, could be stepped down with finer paper then polished I guess.

Needs a few more layers in the crevice.(edited)

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Ana L. of the Aurora Roras /

Aww yeah, belt sanded with 36 grit munched it up quick. All it needs is some skim coats with a plastic spreader. Slick it out with 220,, sounds easy!

One of the nayborhood kids was over here sanding it with 100 grit. Showed him how to use tools n stuff. It was more work than doing it myself come ta think of it. But we finished putting the shit on the other side. Fuuck this kid was going nuts with the sander I’m like dude..

That epoxy is awesome it sands real fine.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

looks awesome

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Sweet! I've used epoxy and fiberglass to reinforce those irreplaceable moped plastics. It's a lot of work, but obviously your project was more.

Nice job!

Cleaning up the shape then I’ll transfer it to the other side.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Ana L. of the Aurora Roras /

Gotr cleaned up, the primer is gonna take a while to dry. Long enuff to get the other side caught up. :) I’ll have to come back and sand a bunch more on this side.

And here I was thinking it was going to forever look like trash.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

I’ve thought it was hot since day 1......... trash? Bro, let’s see you engineer and build, from the ground up, anything on the same level. ScooterT is crushing it, it looks sooo good! So smooth that the pic looks like a digital rendering

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Josiah Radebaugh /

What I meant was... I thought it could never look sooo smooooth. In no way was I trying to attack this work of art. I figured he'd just prime and paint. But This steeped it up another level! This thread is probably one of the, if not the best thread on MA...(edited)
