Wow, Mike! It looks like you were able to get the one on the right pretty flat. That's gonna look sweet once you spray clear, sand, buff, and polish. I can't wait to see them on the bike.

More pics, please!

I'm ready to clear coat the shrouds, but it's cold. So I decide to use a heat lamp and a halogen light to warm the part while curing.

I get the first coat of clear on. Looking pretty good.

Pressed for time and it being cold, I rush the coats of clear and get a lot of runs. I know more work for me but, at least I can sand and buff that out.
I had to do a lot of running around so I turn off the lights and go. When I get back, they need lots of more curing before I can wet sand. So I turn the lights back on. This time I get the heat lamp too close. Damn, bubble and it's burnt. Oh, well chalk the one up to expience. I'm not got to fix it, at least not now. Too cold and I don't have a good space to do this kind of stuff while it is cold.

My friend thrivermonster suggested to put a sticker on it. I like that idea....for now.....

They look awesome, Mike. Is the burnt part behind the crash bars? If it is, SCORE!!

You did a great job, man!

The burn/bubble is right in the "triangle" of the crash bar. In this pic it starts right at the bottom of the cross bar.

Thx, need some more polishing. Also might need to hit it with more clear. May have went through the clear in a couple of spots. Thats for when the weather warms up though.

I would say, don't use an oven to cure epoxy on the shrouds. Mine warped slightly. No big deal really, but I've had to heat some spots and bend. I can't stand rattling on my bike.
