Join the club. 4 jaar later ry ek nog my PROTOTYPE wat ek WIL mooimaak  :laughing4:

Was al die jare maar my probleem... function over form. So gou hy werk wil ek hom gebruik. Te lui vir af-finish, maar die gaan ek. Daar moet eers nog bietjie gedink word, en wil hom eers ook gebruik om te sien wat se mods nog nodig is voor ek finaal maak.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !

Another successful day. The handlanger and I sorted the sidecar brakes and learned three ways not to bend polycarb.  :lol8: I love this sidecar building.

Tomorrow we paint and Friday I start fitting.

Gerard, waarvoor ry jy daai moerse hamer saam? Of is dit Lyn wat dit wil saamvat om die drywer te dissiplineer?   :biggrin:

Die karretjie lyk spiekeries!

The handlanger and I sorted the sidecar brakes and learned three ways not to bend polycarb.  :lol8:

Polycarb is a bitch to bend, but the trick is to get rid of the moisture first.  That is what creates the bubbles.

Need to put it in the oven at around 60° - 80° for about 2 hours.  Then you can do whatever you want with it.
