ek het nou n ander manier uitgedink om lift-strut fairings te maak. Geen taai gom en n geplakkery nie, niks pinholes en putty en body filler nie! Maak nou fairings met .9 aly plaat. Ek het vir my n patent gemaak om die plaat mooi te buig. So nou trim jy die plaat, vou om, boor, rivit, en dit lyk sommer baie nice, en les bes: Lekker LIG. Eerste set op dirk se errie gefit. Dit lyk sommer spiekeries. vhpy

Jy moet vir Dirk se hy moet 'n VP daar insit. Die De Necker gaan nie die ding doen met die 914 nie. Sy lyk mooi
