Silas gets his ride on.

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

Todays work.

Two coats of primer sealer. Can't sand again for 48hrs at this point.

New bracket for turn signal.

Not pointing the finger at HD but these turn signal wires were exposed (as you see them) on the OEM mount. At least they deserve a self-sealing silicone tape wrap.

Here's the last few days.

Primed and one end partially fitted out. Everything's on threaded inserts so there's nothing protruding on the inside. A little more work to do with the turn signal wire.

Internal braces made. I'll drill and paint them tomorrow. Rough install on Tues when the big boy stops by.

Re: Silas's car - Final Stretch

Post by GHGoodwin » Thu Apr 11, 2019 12:18 pm

Painted up and hardware installed. Car goes on the frame Sunday. Scheduled pickup is next Tuesday. Everything sits for a few more days so the paint can dry as much as possible.

Turn signal wire routing around rubber mounting.

Still to do: foam flooring, anti-slip tape for step top.

Silas gets his ride on.

Just so you can gauge his size.
