So which did you find harder to do, weld or sew? 

I’ve never used a vacuum bag on any of my glass projects, but I’ve rolled, wetted, tried various polys/epoxies, matts and mixtures and still wind up with air pockets/bubbles.  So don’t feel too bad about the body work; the results certainly look good.

Did you modify the mikuni cable end to make it compatible?  If so, any tips on re-attaching the lugs?  I’ve tried welding/brazing but haven’t had much luck on the stranded stainless steel cables.  Was thinking of trying to make a casting mold for lead, but looking for an easier way.

Lastly, who/what did you use to host the pics?

Great job, sled really pops.  Don’t try it out in 2 feet of untracked snow, however…….

Welding the chassis was probably the most difficult, metal too thin. The sewing wasn't bad after I finally got it started, a little hesitant to take the first step I guess.

On the cable, It was a mikuni one into two cable. It was about 1 in too short to fit the throttle lever. So I got a longer cable and where it fit in the plastic adapter which connects the two cable to one, I JB Welded a piece of brass tube on the end of the cable. Seems to work pretty good.

I started using Imgur.

Thanks for the comment and no not two feet of snow I was thinking the plowed road.
