I like people with talent.  :thumleft:

Looking good so far. Are you going to split the mould?

Hi
What are you planning to use for the head light. Are you going to use the stock light?

Good point, if you're going Dakar style fairing you probably want to look at some decent lighting.

Pardon the interruption, but should this thread not be in the DRZ section of Tech?

I think the mods did a search on "Dakar" and dumped all related threads under the 650/Dakar section when the new technical section was made up recently.

Mmm, I was away for a while and now I sommer wake up in a different room! Anyway I'm hoping those dogs who subscribed to the dakar style fairing thread gets my update: After removing the fairing plug from the bike and having started some straightening out with body-filler, I noticed some issues with the symmetry. This I only realised once I set the plug up on a marking table over centre lines and started measing points with a height vernier etc. The 1980-ish look of the fairing also bothered me somewhat.
To cut a long story short I started from scratch and here's the basic concept. It's aff the bike already and measured up 100% !! So shaping continues to get that mould done before my holiday expires.

New shape looks a million times better.  :thumleft:
