tell by the cut outs these are clearance for the after market
roll bar. This part was removed and Jack used a 36 grit grinding
disk to remove half of the material (overkill in making) which
means he removed half of the weight. When the part is installed
we will re-skin it to give it every bit of original strength
the part needs. Thus, having a prettier part and being a lot
as if Kevin is going back to his roots, surfs up!
is shaped like the original part and when it is finished we
will make a mold for our other 904 projects.
had a mold for this front trunk brace so Kevin made one with
high dense polyurethane foam which happened to be from a surf
board blank that he purchased 10 years ago when he made a
surf board for Gunnar. Seems that is how Kevin got started
in the business, making surf boards in California, some 100
the mat base first and two layers of S weave for strength.
the inner tail duct for cooling the brakes and the additional
hole in the top most teams use to bring air in for the carburetor
(holes not original equipment).
also a part that no body has as a decent mold, so we dissected
this part from Michael Robottom's 904-068 which was in sad
shape and requires repair work to be nice. Two birds with
of the same part ready for repair work.
tooling gel coat has been applied to Stanley's hood to make
a mold for the inner frame. We had a mold, but it was from
an original hood and did not have the best detail, so after
making Stanley's perfect we decided to make a mold from it.
This will save us a whole day's work each time we make this
part. Stay tuned a lot is happening with this project.
