Hey guys, I want to do the fatty swap on my bike, with a super wide 225/40/10.
Unfortunately I couldn't find a mudguard that would work well as a hugger.
So after watching some how-to vids on Youtube, I thought I'd set out in trying to make my own one
out of Fibreglass.
So here is a step by step on how I went about it.
Firstly I needed a mould ofc. So I got this idea off Youtube and bought a 10 x 600 x 400mm piece of polystyrene of eBay.
Cut it into manageble pieces.
Sellotaped them to the tire just to hold them in place.
Then I used some duct-tape just give it a bit of a smoother finish.
Sorry I missed one of the steppes here, but did something simmilar as with the styrene srtips, but I done four layers in a criss-cross fasion. This gives it strength
All four layers on and all dry.
Roughly shaped and ready for spot repairs.
Spot repairs done and ready for primer coat.
First primer coat on. Now it needs drying and then to smooth it out with 2000 grit wet sanding paper.
