After a month hiatus we are concentrating on the bodywork on our 2005 Electra Glide Standard injected with new life thanks to Klock Werks.
To get you up to speed, in the prior three installments Brian Klock and company supplied us a wide tire kit, front and rear fenders, a dash, and a ton of other goodies to give this old dog some new looks.
With most of the big time mechanical work done we can concentrate on getting the bag extensions installed, tank dash smoothed out and the older OEM sheetmetal straightened and dent-free before paint.
We started working on the Klock Werks dash to properly line it up with the curvature of the tank. It was a little off from the factory, but nothing any bodyman with a little experience couldn't fix.
After the dash was looking good, we moved onto the Klock Werks bag fillers which required attaching them to the lower OEM H-D saddlebags and fiberglassing them smooth to so they looked like the bags came that way. This proved to be a bit tricky due to the ABS bag needing a bit more roughing up to get the fiberglass fillers to adhere properly.
From there we fixed the various dings, dents and scratches that the Harley-Davison tank and outer fairing had in them. It was an easy job smoothing out the rough spots and filling only a few minor issues that the stock sheetmetal had.
With the bodywork done, we can send it off to our painter for the final chapter of the saga known as Klockin' the Standard.
