So my friend starts talking about composites/carbon fiber stuff. So I get on-line and start looking at materials. I come across this blue hybrid carbon/kevlar cloth. My shrouds need fixing/replacing. At almost $200 a side.....fix them it is. Now that the overnight temp is in the 20's, good time to work on them. I tape up the out side. And fiberglass the inside. On the other side I used a small piece of kevlar my friend gave me. That's the yellow stuff. Since I'm not worried about weight or how it looks on the inside, I just slap it on. Just want to get structure back. After some filling and sanding on the outside looks like I'm ready for the overlay. I do like the flat look though. That's not going to happen. They are getting some cloth. So my buddy is going to help with the overlay, since he has been self teaching do's and do nots, and with alot of help from you fine inmates here. This is his road to learning/experimenting. Just a little light reading. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=828372 This weekend should be the moment of overlay.
