Small but effective!!

Post  ryan.moyles on Thu May 14 2015, 11:18

First topic message reminder :

As my relationship with the Thundercat is still a relatively new thing I've been looking for ways to improve the way it looks. These can be obvious changes like a new paint job or different coloured visor/screen, etc. What I am interested in is those little changes that are nice and subtle and people don't really notice straight away. For me things like my new mirrors that vastly improve my vision, the new stickers which are all black and the yellow rim tape (which I thought I'd hate) really enhance my enjoyment of the already beautiful Cat.

What I really want to know though is what are your favourite subtle modifications that just make you grin every time you look at your Thundercat.

All this talk of looking nicer and you still have the tax disc holder in place?! Shocked  Mine was in the bin on the day the law changed! green smile

That is so I don't forget when it runs out lol. Don't know what I'll do next year lol.

I used a two part putty called Milliput, it fun cause it's like playdoe and not as messy as all that resin.

Got pics of side grill but will have to wait to upload till I'm at work tonight

This is the putty I used to fix the mesh on.

This is the side with the mesh in place. I havent fixed it so looks a little loose as still have to finish spraying the side panels next week.

That mesh is going to make changing the plugs and adjusting the idle speed a bit difficult. green smile

Changing the plugs is once in a blue moon so can remove the panel and the adjuster you can access just above the clutch cover behind the panel

Some nice ideas. I've just remembered one of my favourite things is that I replaced all the fairing screws with all matching stainless steel ones. When I bought it they were all rusted and there was many different head and thread types. Now I can take the fairings off in about 5 mins, it's satisfying haha
