The exhausts are on now. I just need to push the manifold nuts up to the head.

Just the saddle left to do now, and as I mentioned, I'm trying to change that to real leather.

I've started by making a silicone plug from the kit part. This was a case of painting a couple of coats of masking fluid in the seat, then filling it with bath sealant.
The masking fluid got in everywhere without bubbles, and the rubber peeled off it cleanly, which was kinda important !! It also gave it a nice green colour :lol:

Image

The next step is to cover it with tissue and diluted PVA to make a rigid base for the leather. I have also glued a bamboo skewer to the plug so I've got something to hold !!
Cheers

I've had a bit of a setback with the seat. I tried covering the mould with tissue and diluted PVA. About half a dozen layers of tissue and it seemed to go stiff enough, but it stuck solid to the mould. I couldn't remove it at all.

Plan B. A new mould was made, and I gave that a thin smear of vaseline, thinking that should act as a release agent. It didn't !! Stuck solid again

Plan C is being thought about.....

Hi Mark, why not try a single misting of spray can (airosol) cooking oil ?

How about wrapping the mould in clingfilm first? :think:

Not if you pull the clingfilm tight, it is sort of stretchy ;)

Two good ideas there - thanks. I'm also considering trying to make the mould without the masking fluid. Maybe PVA will not stick to the silicone sealant ?

hm, normally nothing should bond or stick to the silicone - except some more silicone - so it's interesting, why you ended up with the mess as you describe it...
