It fits
Bending it by hand has created a bit of a sweep/low after the bend ,but a couple coats of HiFill should correct the low .

The only black will be the under coat .

In 24 hours I'll see if they bonded .Looks like I have a nice 2mm layer of 11FC over the surface's . Might even get some dampening thrown in . I was able to get a couple tubes of Sika 252 ( for the baffles ) with out having to by a box of 12 .

A nice piece of steel pipe would of worked better .For the tops and bottoms I'm going to cover them in
Aluminium composite sheets - Dilite | Geplast
A friend said you can curve it by routing the back out 75% so I'm going to try it and if it works I might cover the 2nd pair of cab's in it .Cheaper than 2014 grade alloy and larger sheets for less wastage .

A mate came over so having the extra pair of hands we ripped down the sheet's for the tapped horns .Nothing worse than having to move full sheets around on your own .

Cheers mate

Today I bonded the top & bottoms on . This time I cut the sausage and squeezed the 11FC on then used a wide blade scrapper to smooth it out and even ,this worked better than beading it on .

I've used that aluminium composite before. A thicker version for building cladding. It's a very good idea! I've never used it to bend but I would think that your 75% is a good idea. Should give it a nice bend. Good luck with it Mal.
