Good idea skip but drilled boot for bolts so will have to leave it in the corner.



Fitted handbrake bracket after painting,working fine.Took trike out for another small ride,increased air in rear shocks and seemed to handle better.




More space in boot now its been increased in width.




Cut cardboard templets for front mudflaps will shapealuminium and polish.

Body is bolted to top frame,will also seal to top chassis.



Boot has rubber seal around edge where it meets body,it is a good fit will seal with silicone sealant also.Seat is very good fit also,going to put a rubber seal where seat meets body;)

Nice job, see fiberglassing isn't that hard & you can do so much with it.
Don't need gel coat, just body work & prime.
