Bellypan is here. started to do the boxed-out mod, but will now fill that in and just cut the back\lower off and lower the whole thing an inch, like Spot suggested.
Sounds like my Penske shock is ready for pickup.
Missed the last race weekend....and my pencilled in trackday. uhg.

Painted the plastics & tank. Sides got crinkled because I used the wrong clearcoat. uhg. Tank looks pretty good, could have done more prep to make it look nicer?
Front number plate is mounted.

Paint is all about prep and good quality materials, watch out for contamination too.

I have been using the Spray Max Glamorous High Gloss.
My last can I used on the tank, then I went to a new place and bought a few new cans...but I didn't realize, the new cans were called "Rapid".
So, what I believe happened was that the Rapid dried too fast on top of wet paint (like I normally do) and it crinkled.

After I boogered it up, the can of Rapid says it drys in a couple minutes. The Glamorous dries in an hour and cures in 24hr (something like that)
