I do have a question regarding painting the controls black. Both the clutch and brake will Have to be bled when i reinstall them. I can figure the brake out just fine but i have never done the clutch. Also will the fluid leak out of the hose when i disconnect it? I dont plan on laying the hose down and will tie them so they wont leak much but im sure i will lose some....is this assumption correct? Also.....how much will leak out of the resoviors? One thought of mine was that it wont leak at all ......kinda like the finger over the straw trick. But i feel that will be too good to be true. lol

That is the original piece that has been cut down. Without that piece there is a large gap between the outter fender and inner one. It didnt look finished. The plastic piece also has a grove in it that outter fender slides into and seeing how the plastic piece is attached to the inner (IMO) I feel it gives it it more strength.

what did you use to trim that plastic piece - I am thinking of doing the same but thought of using a dremmel but didn't know if it would tear it up too much?

I used a jig saw and then an oscillating sander to finish it off nicely.

BTW, nice job CW-VRod.

Just an observation for all, I think it looks cleaner when you curve the front most piece of plastic from the bottom up, rather than from the top down like it is stock. Just my $.02
