Question

Thanks !

Next update!
After the welding primer dryed out, it was time to tack weld the airbox, only a couple tacks at the beginning to check it assembled:


Seems to fit good:




Then I put the repro "tunnel" for the back part..and it was totally wrong. I compared it with my original..and for sure it was way off...
I then made some cut to "adapt" it:



and welded some tab to keep the position:


Then it was a matter of filling the space by creating the missing part and tig welding it:




now it fits:




and then I removed the old storage primer, put some primer on it and then some paint in the OG color except where welding comes (I put there some welding primer!):




and then some on the body counterpart:


Cheers

Antoi

Then the firsts tack weld:


And check with every surrounding parts:






And Then fully welded:
