    Also, have you considered making a gel coat mold rather than a resin unit and trying to dissolve your foam? It's far easier than it looks. Just takes the extra step of the gel coat

    The HD foam would have saved all this part with the bog mate, that's why I suggested it. Your determination is strong though and I admire your persistence.

    Top idea Gix!

    Back onto the build though...

    I've "obtained" a large heavy bastard file from work and will be attempting to take off the heavy excess of filler and maybe get back to the shape I want but almost needing to get another set of critical eyes onto it to point our place a it needs to rise/fall/lift/drop that I can't see; any takers?!?

    Considering my record with upside down photos isn't the best I decided to have a mate pop over to give me some guidance by eye and I've taken a little off here and there, got it down to smooth again and painted white so I can see the marks I've made beneath, now I'm thinking another light skim of filler and hopefully a last sand before I can filler prime and flat before giving it a light coat of green (good coverage and of course, Kawasaki) and clear then hopefully on to making the mould.

    Luckily a Pal at work has offered to help out and is adamant we should make the final product from carbon rather than fibreglass so might yet have. Scar on tail unit! It'll be getting painted but I'll be really happy knowing its carbon underneath. May have to clear it guitar then mask of a section to prove its carbon underneath but it could easily look shit so we'll see.

    More fuller applied!

    Starting to hate this now!

    Plus side Mrs ZXR has agreed to my financial estimates so the party can continue!

    Bought a new can in the recent eBay sale which should arrive around the same time as my new fuel pump so looking positive!

    Yeah, I have a ZX9 header on it with the balance pipe removed but I'm wanting a low exit pipe to suit the look of the bike more and the one I got from Hooligan makes it basically straight piped and attracts too much attention.

    Hoping the pipe above will help to drop the DB down a little more once it's fully packed with exhaust mat and a DB killer

    Jim, I know your starting to hate this process, but hang in there. Its going to look killer once you have it done.
    New pipe look good too, it will reduce the DB and should create a deeper note to it.

    So after a few hours more sanding here and there and a few more kilos of filler (literally) I've managed to make a huge stockpile of filler dust and what looks like one finished tail unit plug maybe ready for a mould.

    Now I'm wondering if I can take out some imperfections from the plug in the finished item or does it have to be perfect?
