Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
so the frame mock up has been completed and its now time to strip it and scuff it for a brushed aluminum look.
I changed some hinges on range rover discovery the other day. I took the old hinge and cut it up welded on a few accent pieces drilled and tapped a few holes.
What purpose do they hold??????
Good looking nekkid rat!
What a weekend. Got a lot of parts painted and ready for assembly. Down here in south florida we are getting our yearly douching courtesy of tropical storm debbie. It was a nice break from the heat.
heer are several pics from the weekend.
I got all my holes drilled for the tins to be mounted.
got the wheels painted and tires mounted.
had a brand new xf jag come in with a frontend hit the other. this emblem had a unnoticable scratch on it so the customer got a new one and i got this one. I took it apart a repainted the background and there you have it. just got a figure out a place for it.
here is the rear fender. the mounting bracket is handle from a cabinet i found in the trash a few years ago.
I like the green with this build!!
Lot of cool stuff going on with this wicked build!
well well well its been a real busy week between work, drumming in a band and buildingthis bike. I havn't had the time to post. Here comes a blitz of pics from the past week. I started by finishing the tins and riveting one in place. I then made brackets to hang taillight / battery case.
I mounted the jag emblem on the front door of the canister so that it would double as a handle to access the battery.
so a put chain on and rolled it outside to get a look at it with these bars on it.
but then i thought about these bars. they are from a privious build. the bullets really set them apart from others i have.
I was about to rivet on the other tin but then decided to add some l.e.d. light bars a snagged from a range rover taillight that was smasshed up in a crash. I tuzipped tied the m together and to the bike itself was a quick easy addition and looks f-n sweet!
here is a view from the side with tin installed already.
This is a cool build man!!!
Love that green!
so i added a leeper to the inside of the sprocket. Its totally hidden like.
I started the wiring for the led taillight, led underbody lights and the headlight. the headlight looks neat sittin on there. I will mount it tomorrow once it is wired so i can aim the headlamp before its bolted down forever! I also added a jag emblem to the one tin.
Man, those extended drops are insane!!!
It's really starting to come together!!
Thanks for all the positive feedback guys. This project has been the funnest and wildest bike i have built to date. I am wiring in the lights and battery today so keep an eye out for the picks coming soon.
