Fenders for the Z8-53
« on: November 12, 2015, 04:54:10 pm »
I was telling Jogon30 that I had a plan for fenders on the ZForce 800 and promised I would do a how to if it worked out. I think it did, so here's a video I put together today. Your best friends on this project will be a belt sander with 80G belt, a multi-tool and a heat gun.

Here's the link for the plastics:

And here's the how-to video:


And a few pics:

UPDATE 11/25/15

Well, I did the rears. I really wanted to keep the wings and found a way to do that. Didn't do a How-To video because it was a PITA and wasn't sure it was going to work out...but it did. Here's a few pics:


















Wouldn't be so bad if it hadn't had such weird angles for mounting points and the extra cuts needed.... Took some head-scratching, triple measurement checks..and some "choice words" to get them done. Here's a couple of pick of part of the fab work:

OK, closing the book on this project so here's a final video walk-a-round.

You know, it would be nothing for CFMoto to pump those out for the 53s. Hope they do OK, I think they should. Sure like them better then the EXs I had on before. 2-more to make...:)

Nice job... you are one handy guy! I bet those are going to work out great too. Too bad someone wouldn't fab up another pair or two of those fronts for the 53" for a price? Huh? Maybe? What do you think?  ::)

Lol...Maybe :) Still, it would be so easy for a manufacturer to kick these out..even with the holes pre-done.

Well if you do decide to make a couple more, it certainly would be of interest to me. I don't think there are too many of us with the 53"!

I ended-up taking another about 1/4"+ off the width so if you order them 6"s wide and 39.5"s long, all you will need to do is make the bends, mount them, and shape them to your liking.
