done an amazing amount of sanding down of one of my zxr panels. I have been slowly restoring her using fibreglass and lots of body filler haha.

Ive now managed to fashion a panel out of the 7 pieces of fairing I picked off the road after the crash. New paint scheme on the way sunny

Nice work there! sounds like what i did after i wrote off my bike lol
A good thing i used was industrial grade chloroform...u put some plastic shavings in it and make a treacle like syrup that is amazing at bonding back broken plastics![depending on the plastic type though...it only works on SOME]

Post up pics of the new paint scheme when its done yeah!

its better to be nearly knocked off by the silly woman, instead of really being knocked off as I had in october. was most funny cos most of the mess on the ground was from her car! Very Happy 2 ambulances and 4 cop cars turned up just for me. lol 20 mins after I got out the ambulance I was back on the bike riding home. she put her hands up and admitted to doing wrong. well she did pull out on me.

anyway today I just walked passed my bike as I can't put my helmet on cos I've got stitches in my head grrrr but they'll be out friday. can I hear a woop woop Very Happy

cheers WOOP WOOP!!! cheers

Your right, nearly being knocked off is DEFINATELY better than really being knocked off... If it wasnt for my quick swerve she would have, these silly people should not be driving in the road if they are going to be doing stupid things!! Drivers need to be more bike aware!!

Good luck with getting your stitches out on friday, hope that all goes well for you bro.

Wouldn't I be right in saying that it would be your fault if you crashed into the back of her? Surely you were too close if you had to swerve to miss her when she stopped. Obviously, i dont know the whole story and I am just reading what was written. If so, then lesson learnt my friend. Only a fool breaks the two second rule Very Happy

If I am completely wrong however, please feel free to throw various items of fruit at me Basketball

And once I have sorted out the designs, I will post them up before painting starts bounce bounce

Cheers all,

thanks bud. this'll make you laugh the lovely lady that drove into me rides a bike as does her husband!!!
this is what happened to me. on my way home after work there was some traffic light controled roadworks (been there months) so i was slowing down to stop. to my left is an esso petrol station and as im coming closer to the exist of it a ford focus starts to come out! she looks right at me and then goes for it. at this point i learn to fly.... could have been worst

lol! 2 second rule in London? Dude, on a motorway that is good advice but in the city that 2 second gap would be full of more potentialy dangerous drivers!

On another note how are you going to paint your panels? I recently bought a large air compressor and intend on learning to spray, drop me a pm if you wanna try it out, i am in Coulsdon Very Happy

I was going to use rattle cans, but i may juat have to learn the ways of the compressor if your willing to give it a go. I am still at the designing stage/ repairing of panel stage atm so will give you a buzz when thats all done.

All the best

i did more stuff with my bike today so i thought ill give a little update!

Got my bits from the powdercoaters, gonna post up about them later as they did an awesome job! so yeah i fitted the black pillion pegs, and new black levers, and used some good old caustic-soda to clean the inside of my new downpipe [it was filled with soot/carbon]

Tommorow i am going to go buy some exhaust packing wool, and rivet together my end can, and then its just a waiting game until my new exhaust hanger and heatproof decal for the exhaust arrive! pics will come when its all done Smile
