The lost stealth shroud thread
« on: February 25, 2014, 08:40:55 PM »
I am guessing I started this thread on the other site and forgot to copy it over here. I hope this is not repetitive of the old thread. The shrouds I am copying came from a shop known as RTC. They are a little on the spendy side as the material was polished and clear plated before it was worked into shape. The side view of the shroud resembles the Stealth aircraft. The main point is to offer a different design than the flat shrouds everyone else makes. But more important is to be at half the price. These will be made with raw aluminum and the customer will paint or PC to match his quad.

I took the program I had and added an extra inch to one side to create the V. RTC uses 2 inches and the V seems a bit steep. So as not to copy the other guys I will stick with these.

The front view shows how wide these will be.

With a little color.

I still have your PM...that was not lost

Went back to see where I left off. The shrouds from a side view have a dip to them. So rev 1 is adding 3/8 of an inch to the center of the V so it will appear straight after bending.

The front view pic was always one on my favorites, those shrouds with the green frame looks like some kind of angry reptile! !!   :ride:

Any pics mounted with plastic or on a complete bike?  Trying to get an idea how it'll look with the "bowed sections"

I remember posting pics I got from other members on ATVriders. http://www.atvriders.com/vbb/showthread.php?465221-RTC-Radiator-Shrouds&highlight=Radiator+Shrouds  
Sam posted a link in this thread to .Net  which may have been deleted http://www.trx250r.net/forum/body/20327-pumas-stealth-shrouds.html

They are the same size as my originals. Just added an inch for the V

It hurts too much to think. I just have to get back on them. I promised a set to member #300 last August. He is needing them for his dune trip in March. I gotta get these figured out and modified to fit his frame/radiator.
