The "Look what I made/installed/modified today" thread.

We have a "Look what I bought thread" so why not a "Look what I made/installed/modified today" thread.

Lots of us have been putting in some wrench time and getting our hands dirty and dusty. Post up you projects you did.

Today I finished up my shaved battery cover. Ill start the next one today.

its Autobody 101 stuff. I just used a soldering gun to melt the cover to the big cover. Then grind the plactics to prep for epoxy. Sand the epoxy then light coat of polyester putty. Then prime.

I guess its a little more inconvenience. But worth it if it cleans up the engine bay.

Taking a little break before I start the install of the 3.5
