19 - Header Clamps60 viewsThis shows the polished and assembled header clamps. Also shown is the lay out for the main mounts. I usually use a smaller aluminum angle but the supplier only had this size available when I went to get the material. I usually buy already cut pieces to make hauling them home easier since I only have a car for the transportation.

17 - Header Clamps, Rough74 viewsThe header clamps are cut out, filed/sanded to shape and fit with the pivot pin. They now need to be polished and have the pins set. To set the pins I pien the ends so they can't come out of the holes.

16 - Main Frame Repairs57 viewsWhen the main frame came out of the molds some of the colored resin stayed bonded to the mold and some of the final coat on the mold came off on the main frame. I had to sand quite a bit off to get a smooth surface so I am adding a couple top layers of cloth to replace the strenght I sanded off.
