I needed to adjust the backside of the poly part. Now it fits nicely and is just the way i wanted it to be.














Here you can see the crossovertray while opening.








Picture of the inside of the place where the crossovertray will be mounted in.











Next thing to do is shape the front of the tray so that is will fit for 100%.

It was pretty cold, but i found a way to keep me warm.
This is what my workshop lookes like after sanding on the tones of metallica's death magnetic.


As you can see, i've used a can of spraypaint to sand the curves.

Sounds like a fair trade to me.


In America we have this 5 star hotel called the "Best Western" It's stunning.

Here's a picture of the finished part to fit on the front of the crossovertray.









On this picture you can see that it fits perfectly.

Watch out for this scammer, Best Western is not what europeans would consider to be a 5 star hotel.
It's more like a motel but without the usual action.

I've cut some glas to mount in the sidepanels.



Then i've sanded the carbon frames and prepared them to get painted.


The inner rail is mounted a bit lower than the rest. I'm going to fix everything with TEC7.







The carbon on the frontside is sanded and ready to get clearcoated.
