Some facts:

– The propshaft tunnel is modified.

– The propshaft tunnel has a kick-up.

– The rear axle can, under extreme load, hit the cover on the propshaft tunnel.

– The gear box is slightly higher than the highest point of the propshaft tunnel.

I need a cover with curved sides. It must also be bent at the kick-up and it must be rigid.
As always it must be as lightweight as possilble.

Help! smiley

Had to make one in fibreglass or, why not in carbon fibre?
Yeah I know carbon fibre is expensive, but I am doing this myself (no labour cost) and with the right connections one CAN buy the material needed reasonably cheap. Make that less super expensive.

Started by manufacturing a model in foamed styrene which was covered in dry wall putty. After some grinding (A grave understatement) it was covered with one single layer of fibreglass. Some more grinding and a few layers of paint later it looked like this.

A mould was made of the model and then it was not that hard to make a very rigid and very, very lightweight cover in carbon fibre.

Weighs in at about 340 grams.

Yeah I know… Bling bling, but this is actually carbon fibre for a reason, not just for show.
