laid another mesh layer then a weave layer.removed the foam and mud form with any hand tool that fit to chunk it out. I need to wash the inside out with TSP and acetone then add reinforcements and an inside layer.Here is it rough sanded with 100 grit and it only weighs 20 lbs right now.

Nice work straightening the mouth of that carb.
I wonder what the dude was thinking when he installed the rear end upside down?? :silly:


It's been a while but the chain opening on the rear end isn't centered as I recall, so if the drive sprocket was on the wrong side the only thing you could do was flip the rear axle housing to get it on the proper side. I thought there was a negative to doing that but I can't recall what it was now and it's not that the drain plug is on the top.
