Thanks guys. I'm Going to do it over again and get a little better fit and finish this weekend. Yes, I do need to find shorter screws, but the best way would be to conceal them completely

bears... how about.. a recessed screw? you could weld a nut behind the plate, screw goes in from the bottom, and put a screw cover on it? either that of use the plastic tabbies.

The problem with welding is, that is aluminum and the nuts are steel, can't weld the two. I tried jb weld, but once it hardens, the nut pops right off after a bit, I don't want a jb welded part holding up the entire assembly.

I might put the screw head side on the bottom so it's flush and doesn't stick out. Hmm, that's a good idea

Nice! I took the easy way out and used zip ties through existing holes on my r6. Can hardly see the ties and the plate hasn't moved an inch.

Cool, but you probably didn't have an ugly plastic piece that when you removed it, just left a big hole there

Love to see somebody willing to launch off into the unknown and tackle things they never did before. A lot of satisfaction can come from making things yourself and it's good to know you can be self reliant.
That looks good so far!
There are a lot of different screw heads, look around and you will find one that suits the look you want. Also there are washers that can help with a more flush appearance.

What became of your carbon fiber project?

I have you covered in the powdercoating department.
I'll do it in matte black for 20 , and if you want to start producing them for resale and bring numerous, I'll do them for 10 ea.

Eh, too much work for not enough gain, plus I don't have a rivet gun.

Thanks man, it's always nice when it's done, looks good and fits well. Much better than over paying to order one online. I haven't gotten into CF yet, the materials are sitting in my garage, it's a little overwhelming and requires patience which I don't have a lot of... lol. I'll get around to it eventually.

Hmm, thanks, I'll shoot you a PM when I have finalized the part.

Yea, I flipped the screws last night and it already looks much nicer, but they aren't flush yet, I'll probably countersink the plate, see if that works.
