I decided to cover the fender in fiberglass, and go with fiberglass scales. I must be getting old, I thought someone could really get hurt on those metal spikes. Two layers of glass applied. I used the last of my Entropy Resin epoxy resin, bummer. For anyone who does a lot of glass or carbon layups, I highly recommend it. Almost no odor, and dries crystal clear. This isn't an advertisement, just spreading the word about an alternative to West epoxy.
So this just happened! 3 coats of gloss lacquer, a dusting of red flake, top of with 3 heavy coats of 2k gloss clear and voila! The wind wasn't cooperating, so there is a little more red than I would have liked. I think once the fenders and all the other small red bits are on it will balance nicely.
Thanks KOTA, I had some moments of doubt, but I think I'm going to make it. I got the rear wheel as close to true as possible, so that's a plus. Rear fender still needs finishing, but I should be able to pull that off in a week.
Threw some mud on the fender tonight, sanding and fin install will be tomorrow. I know I said that the other day, but I need to get on with it. I'm mulling around the idea of a front fender. It will all depend on how much time I have.
Started hanging parts on the frame. I forgot my tap and dies at work, so drive train will have to wait. It was getting late anyways. Now the question is, which side is the dominant side. Anyone will tell you drive side is where the money is at, but those polished spokes are on the other side. What to do, what to do?
