  1. I'm using 1/4" on mine. Seem to be getting pretty good penetration.
  2. I had a Ducati Panigale that was incredibly hot to ride in the summer. There is a vendor that supplied a pre-cut kit to attempt to cut down the heat some. It was made out of this type of material. May be worth a shot. https://www.ebay.com/itm/265254461884?var=0&mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&campid=5338590836&toolid=10044&customid=0d31e138d0c918cabc97870f685cbe73
  3. Thanks for the information Gents! M29C3284 and Patrick Tipton, I check your threads for examples, but just wanted to confirm angle. I'll check with Robert to see if he has any more hinges left.
  4. Looking for some info if someone has it handy. What are the angles of the "steps" on the lower part of the hull? Circled in red. What about the hinges? Are there any sources for them?
  5. More progress. I'm glad I don't get paid by the hour. 🙂
  6. Just a few photo updates as the floor progresses.
  7. I don't think engine compression will yield much at this point. Especially if the engine has sat for a while. If it were me, I would try to get the engine running and oil circulating before I test compression. I'm assuming that you're cranking with the plugs in? How does it perform with the plugs out?
  8. Hot Diggity! I can get back to workin on my weasel!
  9. I think it is threaded. Yeah, don't pull on the belt grooves...
  10. @OZM29C I have considered that and have not ruled it out since I'm at the stage of adding this will be really easy. I'm also of @Patrick Tipton's mindset that it will be just as easy to pump any fluids out.
  11. That looks about right. I'm getting ready to have the "J" channel bent up here soon. I was lucky to get some of the last 2" channel that (I think Rob) had bent up for his kits. There is a drawing of hat channel dims in the files section, but it is in MMs
  12. @Patrick Tiptonand @OZM29C I had considered utilizing the area in which the step was so that my weld work would be hidden, but the previous repair went higher than that area, so I had to trim a little higher. Check the following photos. I think I should be able to get it pretty strait, and was going to utilize Patrick's method of mig tacking, and tig filling. We'll see how it goes!
