Compsites Machinist for a few years. International Composites Corp.
Spray on bed liner is nothing more than Poly Urethane. We used it to spray up cylinders for the printing industry. Over rated in most app's other than bed liners.
Porosity and texture are Wholy dependent on the guy behind the gun and the condition they keep the equipment in. I've seen guys spray it on glassy smooth and some that looked like a lava flow just blew out. just depends.

Look in McMaster Carr catalog or Grainger.( McMaster Carrs cheaper/better) and they have just about anything in stock. redwood plastics is another good (but more expensive) alternative but they have an inhouse Machining department and the knowledge that goes with it.
My moneys on PET (Delrin), UHMW or PEEK. All can be machined or heat formed. Realativle inexpensive and will exept glues and paint's. They don't need Mythacrilates to glue like Nylon's and Acrylics. well Delrin might but it's the high end of the prices anyway.
UHMW is long fiber'd and can be a bitch to machine but dirt cheap so it's worth a look. Can be bought in sheats and heat formed but higher heat. Tends to get gripy with wear. Delrin or PEEK don't.
Nylon Without! Moly could be used but needs to be machined and is harder to find. Usually cast to order, Bars, Sheets, rods and pipe. but is the shiznit for a wear item. and fun as hell to machine. like butter with a babys ass finish.
Heres the catalog.;http://www.mcmaster.com/

Sorry, screwed the pooch on this one. PETA is a plastisizer, PET is a plastick.
Rusty. it's been awhile and the real plastics guru friend is "unavailable"

dagwood screwed with this post 09-01-2004 at 06:23 AM Reason: oops

Those carbon guards look nice but how do you get to the fuel tap?

By the way, Japan is one of my favourite places, I used to visit with work a lot some years ago and travelled the islands, so many clashes of culture but without fail some of the nicest people on this planet.

Girls are cute to.

Looks like a custom rally skid plate/box. The KTM Rally version holds the mandatory water, and has a tool storage as well. (Now that I think about it, it may be the KTM version, as I do not think I have seen one from this angle before.)
