"Pretty-up" those ears w/pic

Well after alot of thought I decided I kinda like the look of the "ears" but the fins on them were the hardest part to get past, so I made some carbon fiber inserts let me know if you think this looks ok ~as far as the Ears go anyway~ hahaha

wasnt any need to. the black "finned" ones just popped off, I used them as a pattern to cut the carbon fiber sheet, I used a large pair of sissors to cut the fiber, after its cut sized and edges filed smooth I used some 3-M double sided tape, but after doing that I wasnt real happy with the security of it, so I drilled 3 holes and used very small bolts with acorn nuts, a nice stainless rivet would look good also. Unlike sheetmetel the carbon sheet will bend but it wont stay bent and the filter isnt flat so the bolts were the best option for me.

Jaackil - Try eBay. They always got some kinda carbon fiber sheeting. Just look for the vn750 parts (or the link off the main forum page).

Rick - I'd like to see what's under the fins. How did you blister your chrome?
