      well guys gotten a little more work done. The sectioned part of the motor cycle gas tank was grafted to the filler pipe from the tank. Turned out very nice. Every thing was then blasted and and primed just need to make time to weld it in. Hope I remember to take out the callers next time

      talk about memories in 1982 I came up with a 14 piece .090" thick reinforcement plate set...for just such problems.

      Or course that was before Vortex....so I ended up selling 1.

      I haven't seen rust like that since I left VT.

      I've got TWO chassis in the back yard that don't require ANY of that shizzle! For sale.

      good work dude...and boy I KNOW it's work!

      So, sorry if you mentioned it, but what material are you using? And yeah, us dialup users hate everyone, pretty well.

      what materials did you need to know about? I have been using some replacement pannels that I have found over the years and sheet metal that was stock thickness bent and welded to shape.

      No, sorry! I meant for windows. I have MkI wing vents ("no-drafts" we used to call them) with the usual detached little lever trhat you can't glue back on. I'd like to replace the glazing with something you can drill so I can use a Cabby (or whatever) latch that needs a hole.

      good eye... It is a bike cap and to fit it I sectioned a gas tank from a bike to make it fit right, I sure like doing things the hard way.

      Well I actually took those old wi windows out and put the American non vent windows in. But if you are looking for a glue talk to some auto glass guys I was hooked up with industrial grade stuff to mount everything for my rear windows
