    Wissler, do you think a better price would be had if there were more parts at once? Or because it's so labor intensive it won't matter?

    Bob. Not sure. I took some pics of a horn cover and emailed it to them. Their quote for 1 was $50-$65 per cover. I just threw in the brake splitter and crossed my fingers.
    I'd like to do both rear fenders, gauge cluster, and black side covers.

    Thanks, was wondering if a group of us got together whether it would cut the cost.

    Future plan sounds awesome, especially with your silver paint!

    :hello: I would like to have my horn covers rechromed. Not sure how we would do a group deal. I guess the best thing is send our parts to one person. Then have them done. Then again the cost savings would be eaten up in double shipping.

    :hello: On the topic of horn covers what is the status of the member you was going to try to duplicate the ZL 1s horn covers. Did he manage to get one from someone as a templet?

    Yes R.J., a mold has been made and Oldrider is the one doing this. If he wants to step forward and give us an update on the progress, I'm sure he'll be along shortly to do so.

    :hello: Old rider was the one that was going to get horn covers duplicated but he is MIA as so many other members. Does anyone know anyone that has a 3D printer.

    Yep, Oldrider screwed me good on that cover. It's a wonder that I do anything for anybody but then I don't run into bad apples very often.

    I use Autodesk Inventor as my primary design software at work. The best way to duplicate is to lazer scan then dump that file into a printer.

    Stock horns are pretty but frankly the dB is weak, I can yell louder. I'm about ready to shelve the original and put on some attention getters. Maybe I'll mount some real horns under the seat where the airbox was and unplug the spensive stockers.

    AFAIK it's not possible to scan chromed pieces coz of too many reflections which blur the model; either de-chrome the part before or measure and rebuild in the pc. At this point I suggest a database on the side for ZL-3D-files which can be printed everywhere in the world and later chromed...

    A quick coat of plastidip would solve any reflection issues. I don't have a lazer scanner at my disposal though.

    :hello: My ZL 10 horns are louder than any stock horns that I've ever heard. Some of the cycle magazines said the same thing.
