Default custom tail project

Ok, i like the look of my F3 but i still think there's something missing, so i decided to set a project for myself for this winter..... i have to do something to keep me outta trouble, and i dont really fall into the crowd with the f4i face lift and rr tails... so i started messin around with a few different designs and i came up with one that i really liked, too bad i cant really draw at angles.. i can never seem to get the body lines quite right, so here's my doodle of my project tail im gonna be workin on this fall/winter, tell me what you think of, im already in the process of buyin my a/b 3lb foam, and ive already got the glass and everything else sittin around

Yes lets see it I love custom bodywork. I have done a few body mods myself and if you have any questions about bodywork let me know and keep us posted.

yeah, i may have a few questions when i get down the line, but workin with a-b foam is pretty easy for me, i made custom ground effects for my old 91 camaro i had when i was in high school it was my senior project, but i did that easy way, i just followed the body lines and made the side vents bigger, and wider so my rear tires werent stickin out, and the front bumper i did the same, but i didnt use a-d foam back then i used what i had available and that was bricks of the pink foam that the shop had, i spent a lot of time fixin and readjusting the fiberglass but with a-b foam you really dont have to worry about the heat warping/melting it

yeah so im basically removing the banana seat when i make this, so its gonna be a one seat bike, the rear center piece i may make into a storage compartment that your able to remove so that u can still have a rear seat, ive been lookin at a site for street fighters and have found a lot of info on how to do this, my main thing was that i didnt want to chop and weld the sub frame, so im basically sticking with all the original mounting places, and i havent decided on whether or not im keeping the stock tail light, i was thinkin about goin with dual led strips for the brake lights, and the same thing for the turn signals, but i may change my mind, its a work in progress, never know what may pop into my head next
