Well as some of you know i have done the "goldwing mod" on my air boxes and they bothered me. they just dont look the way they should so here is what i did. i got some plastic bondo and tried my hand and smoothing the vents out in the airboxes and this is so far what i have come up with. i got them all sanded and there are some low spots that i have filled again and will have to sand more tomorrow. but i will update this post more as they get done.

oh and this is my first ever try at anything like this.:-X:-X:-X:-X:-X













and the touch up stuff.





oh and i painted the silver metal on the K&N filter plates because you can very easily see them threw the vent.

Now you just need to finish it with your satin black. I can't wait for my Ducks covers to get finished. They just got mailed off today to him and I am already excited.

I can still see some seams around the cutouts, but it could be the light. I think the true test of how they look will be when they are on the 9. But they do look better than before.

I think it's going to look wicked, kind of a sinister look in the black like that.

I'd get a tube of spot putty and do some final filling, you can do that over paint and just hit them with the color again. Spot putty is a thin filler in a tube and it spreads and sand easily.

If you try it, sand what you already have lightly with a sanding block or a piece of paper on a flat small block. This will remove the paint on the high areas and leave it on the low, so you know where to apply the spot putty.

When I'm doing something like that I use two different colors of primer. Putting, lightly prime, sand so you can see the highs and lows, prime again, etc. It sometimes takes a few attempts but is worth it.
