Stoneman said it perfectly. Tools needed will be.

-Rotary tool w/ various bits
-maybe a small rounded file for fine work
-some fine grit wet/dry sand paper to smooth everything out
-some CA and Q-tips to seal up the edges of the graphite where it was cut
-PATIENCE!!! Just remember, you can always take more material off, but you can't put back on!

Please don't forget to wear a breathing mask of some kind and work in a ventalated area. Probably a good idea to keep the kids and pets away from the area as well! And as soon as your done, clean up the area. Clean the work surface with a wet cloth and vacuum the floor. That graphite dust is nuthin' to get lazy with on the clean up, once it goes in the body, it doesn't come back out!

I've already got the picture sized pretty close to perfect. Now I just have to print it out. I'll be picking up the hollow shafts and lightweight chassis this weekend, so I'm going to have the car pulled apart anyway, so I figured I'd wait till then to make my attempt.

Check out your shells as well.
I see a 40 gram difference between the heaviest and lightest shells here.
It's gotta be paint.

Thats $48 I can spend somewhere else!
I think if WEIGHT is the issue that ppl want to concern on the radio deck, the stock carbon deck has plenty of room for you to DRILL HOLES and save weight...that will save you good $45....and pobably ended up lighter then this LW radio deck.

quick question how the heck do you get the 2nd gear pinion of the clutch housing? I have the pinion wrench and a can of WD40. I've tried heating it as well as freezing to no effect I'd like to get this stock gear off without destroying anything any tips would be much appriciated.

Use two pair of channel locks one on the housing and one on the gear hold it tight enough so it won't slip I had the same prodlem

Put a piece of wire through the hole behind the 2nd gear, and twist the two ends of wire till they are close to touching the bell. Be careful not to go to tight or you may warp the part. Then get a pair of chanel locks, and twist.

P.S. It may be easier to hold the wire with another set of pliers as you are doing this.

Hope it helps.
