yeah, short strand fiberglass body fill. I've used it a few times on the car and sled, every once and a while on the comp but not this much at once. I've got layer #3 on now (above is the first layer) and this thing is getting heavy.

Should look good tho when done...i'm hoping :P

Nope....HAD a sled, Formula 500 Ski-doo...moved south to Toronto area and there just wasn't enough snow to justify the cost anymore. I bought her when I was 16, loved that thing like it was my first born :P Used to drag race it when I first got it...did pretty good too.

Eventually my brother and his friend took it for a ride one day when I wasn't around and wrapped it around a fence post. The engine was ok, the radial arms needed to be banged back into place and they wasted about 3 of every 5 paddles on the track but the cowling was just shot, all cracked up. Had to re-fiberglass/bondo it and then re-paint it. Had it looking stock again from the outside...not so pretty on the inside tho :P

Freak'n younger brothers and their "friends". Neither one ever paid me a dime. Cost me about 20 hours of time and $100 to fix...depreciated the value by a good $1000 easy.

1998 Ski-doo Formula 500

What she looked like pre-post wrapping (not my machine)

Ok...need a break from the fiberglass stuff...going wonky...on coat number 4 now. Anyways, put the fans on for the intake, I'm thinking of a double fan affect. The first ones will be black, same colour of the case and the second ones will be chrome with white lighting. Going for a cool back lit effect.

Here is a rear view of the case...left side of the photo shows the intakes before being cut...right side shows how they are now with the fans behind them.



Decided I need a securing plate to keep them from moving so did up a quick plate out of some aluminum sheeting with my dremel...the drill press is in the shop getting repaird, lost its power for some reason.



Anyways...back to the fiberglass work...bah.

not back to back like that :P

I saw this somewhere....with a backlit fan and it looked cool...going to try it and see how it looks. Worse case scenario, I just use smaller bolts and go with a single.
