The guy that's helping me out with this project does digital 3D scanning.
I gave him 2 ductails to scan, and the pics you see are the end result so far.
He's also helping me with the full replication of the tail lights as well.
I'm hoping to have a first prototype sample by the end of the year.
The idea is to get everything 3D printed as a complete tailsection with the lights.
I asked the guys that i'm working with on this to give me a complete unit that will bolt up just like an OEM ductail.
So, as you can see, i'm putting a lot of time and money into this.
Let's see how it goes.
Mondial keep in mind I have RP'ed a complete motorcycle and may be of help !!!;)

Ever so close now.

Well, the time has come to finally reveal what i've been working on for the last 5 years,
My Suzuka 8 HRS Endurance Tail Lights,
I was fortunate enough to obtain an actual HRC factory set of these tail lights out of Japan.
The term 'Unobtanium' is very true of these lights, as they were only ever produced for the HRC factory teams for the Suzuka 8HR race.
These tail lights will now be fitted to one of my ductails very shortly & then put through some rigorous testing to ensure that they will cope with the stresses, strains & vibrations associated with the SP's.
Enjoy the video.







Well here they finally are. It's been a long road to get to this stage. 5 years from the time i managed to score a set of the original factory HRC tail light...
