Nice, Dane. Definitely badass, and it'll sound wonderful. You've put a lot of engineering hours into that...

Thanks, but I don’t have as many hours in it as you might think; it hasn’t been too bad (worst part for me was fabric/paint, I hate paint and wish I had better facilities to do a better job. LIGHTING IS IMPORTANT!).

My delays were purely personal, I have no good excuse for this taking as long as it has.

Finally! I’ve been waiting to see those pictures Dean. Share more when you have a chance. I agree that’s gonna look and sound bad ass.

I just need to figure out why my tach isn’t working before I can do any meaningful testing now!

Under seat close out trays

Postby danerazz » Fri May 08, 2020 6:44 pm

Here is my solution to the under seat area (don’t want to drop anything to be banished to the tail).

I used .020 6061 (because I had some laying around) and formed wedge shaped trays that fit between the seat rails and end just behind the front of the seat when they are in the rear most position. I then used trunk liner and spray glue to finish. They are held in with 3M high bond mounting tape.

I also have a cover for the control area, it will get trunk liner as well but I have not finished that yet.
