How #1 points cover

Post by selectedgrub » Wed Oct 26, 2011 7:50 am

Some of you may have seen this.
I have plastered it over on some other forums.

Lump of flat 3/8" plate.

Image

Chomp it to a disc, chuck it in the press.
Just used a big socket and a piece of tube.

Image

Weld rod onto so I can lathe it.

Image

Take some meat out rebate so the polycarbonate can fit.
I use polycarbonate plastic cause it's got a higher melt point than acrylic.

Chuck in some rivets cause it's my style ;)

Image

Get some paua shell (Abalone) grind little pieces off.

The irdescent effects of paua shell are *#@** cool.
Cause it's going on a green bike I thought the green rainbow colors that catch the sun will compliment the bike.

Resin in to the rivet holes

Image

It's hard to get the picture to show the effects of the shell but it catches the sun sweet.
