Okay here's how far I've got with the airbox removal...
The battery box is now bolted to side of the frame and hidden inside the canvas army pouch.
Wires need tidying up but I'm almost there. Just thinking about where to put the ignition barrel now, may even hide that in another pouch on the other side, dunno.
The cone filters are cheap rubbish ones purely as a mock up and to cover the intakes. Will go for something like K&Ns.
Anyway, I've had to switch priority to prepping the tank for paint. I've got the tank and rear mudguard booked in for a demo paint at the NEC bike show in Birmingham later this month with Samurai Paints. They claim to be specialist motorcycle aerosol paint suppliers. Flip, candy and sparkle paint on offer and they're gonna do it for free so what have I got to lose? Could turn out great, or if not I'll just get repainted. I do fancy old school metal flake, we'll see.
I've decided to make a brass bar for the idiot lights, and bolt to the tabs that originally held the front of the tank console.
And finally, a pic of headlight guard...
