Ok, so it's been a looong time since my last update. I am still working on it but I had a 2+ week stretch were I didn't even have time to touch it. When I do work on it I feel like I just spend so much time without getting much done.
Lots and lots of test fits and just trying to figure out MFH!
I used painter's tape to make a guide for cutting the leather shapes.
The seat looks much better with real leather vs painted I think. Very cool that MFH includes that.
I also mostly completed the rear suspension
Test fit with everything.
I had some trouble joining the cockpit to the engine.
I connected it but it was not straight so I pulled it apart. I'm waiting for a slightly larger drill bit (1.5mm) to use a larger screw to join them.
I used CVA but it came apart fairly easy (I guess there's not much surface area for it to join) so maybe next time I'll use epoxy? I plan to add some kind of supports to reinforce the connection as well. I read about others having problems with the strength of this joint as well.
