Overlaying kevlar/carbon cloth on KLR650 Shrouds

Getting ready to put some cloth on.

Slathered up the shroud with some epoxy to stick the cloth to.

Overlayed the cloth on had some problems getting the cloth to stick to the backside. Wanted to wrap over the edges. The cloth wouldn't stick with epoxy so we cut the cloth. I'm hoping to still get a smooth edge after all the epoxy sanding and clear coating. So far it's not too bad. In hind site I would've taped the cloth to the back, and after the first coat cured. I would have epxoied the back side.

Here's after I trimmed them up after the first coat cure.


Here's a close up with a wet third coat. I still have a bunch of sanding to do to get them smooth. But they are starting to look pretty good.
