does basing your moulding on a downed tank mean that it will fit the downed tank best and not one with all it's material? or was the downed tank just superficial damage?

How about a good ole' dremel on the edges? You could also contact BigTwin (he made CF/kevlar guards for the 950 folks) for his finishing secrets.

Here is a source for the orange/black weave (hybrid fabric):

They also have green, yellow, red, and blue (2000 tanks eh?)
I haven't bought anything from this company so this isn't an endorsement.

You could use part #2 (aluminum) as your bracket to attach to the guard after curing...
