So , part of my doing work in the interior, is making it more subtle at the back and more legit.

So I decided to remove the orange straps of the fuel cell and searched for something nicer.

And then Tom found an AWESOME shop where I went...and voila . . .

This shop has pretty much everything I needed and more . . .

I had black in my mind - but then I saw the blue like my car's blue - and the green like the Kawasaki green . . . However I struggled to not go for green this time to go for the look I wanted inside . . .

These were also on my mind . .

So here is what I went with . . .

And went from this . . .

to this . . .

Which I like even more :)

We also started making a cap for my WG pipe for when it rains and the car is parked . . .

LoL

More to come - :)

So, more updates.

Today I thought it was time to tackle the task of installing the rear AeroCatch pins - and remove all OEM locking mechanisms.

My heart hurt a bit when cutting material . . .

Here is the material removed...

Posted Image

Making tabs for the interior hinge parts

Posted Image

Posted Image

Almost there -

Posted Image

And done

Posted Image

Posted Image

If anyone wants, I can show the parts removed- pretty happy with the looks of it - functionality of it, plus the weight removal. I wonder I can remove some weight from the arms that support it. We will see.

cheers - more to come.

Looking good Doc, although isnt there a better solution to the straps on the fuel cell? Like some proper brackets?

The straps look like an after-thought.

Hello Pete, the straps were the original thought to keep the weight low. There not the slightest movement of any kind. Very very safe there. Plus I like how they look ;)
