[QUOTE=xpedro01;411387]Xist;Thanks, you proved it can be done.
When l try, l get this;


XPedro, I should have mentioned that you need to make sure to remove the "http://" when you post the address. When I paste, it replaces that with my address. Right now you have "[IMG]http://http://"

I hope that helps!

Eta, I apologize for going off-topic!

1-The one on the left is the original. It is a 2012 "icebear magnum",300cc,liquid cooled, auto transmission,chain drive, 1f-2r trike.

2.-After destroying a perfectly usable machine. The materials used are .063" aluminum and 063" lexan. Lexan is a super friendly plastic. Try torturing a DVD disk.

3.-It worked ok even after changing the drive sprocket, from 19 tooth to 29 tooth (52% overdrive) but l was uncomfortable in cross winds. This led to a complete reworking and lowering 14 inches. This called for rebuilding body, frame, and wiring.

4.-This is the shape of the belly pan. It is 36" wide and 96" long.

5.-Here is the ventilation system. You can see Mustang radiator cooling fans. The back is open. Air is drawn in from the cut out for the front wheel and exhausted with these fans. Because the operator sits in front of the engine l felt it needed exhaust fans, and it also has a carbon monoxide detector.
At the moment I am putting my free time on my baby Honda Insight 2000 MT. After finishing its mods I plan to continue on the trike. The Honda is necessary--the trike is a mileage thingy.

Thanks-iveyjh-I see where you have put an extension on a vehicle. I also added 16" on the tail of my 2000 Insight MT. It looks like a 5% GAIN. The link is;

That's just some coroplast work, nothing up to your level of expertise.
