I’ve ordered some rubber Rivnuts to attach the side panels – should work OK.
In the meantime seat now has final flat and primer. Final flat with 600 next week – I like to allow plenty of time for the paint to surface harden.
Front m/guard has final flat with 400 and then same process as the seat.
The tank will take a few more hours yet to get the shape symetrical before that’s ready for final prep.
