Having bonded the 5 layers of each rear stay it was time to start the shaping process. However I needed to get rid of lots of material in some places, so instead of hacking at them with files and rasps, I set about them with a wood saw.
Cutting rear stays down to size.
Nesxt step is to actually do some broad stroke shaping. I am going to give the angle grinder a go fitted with a car body paint stripping grit disc. Should be interesting.
