A massive thankyou to Marcin for the hard work he put into this as it wasn't a straight forward print and thanks for making my bike individual !!!

Cheers,

Jim.

Bloody awesome to see it installed!
And I got a proof now that special treatment I've given to the plexi works wonders for illumination :]

Cheers bud!

I wonder if the mask could go a bit lower to have the "get away with it" illuminated as well.
Darn LEDs in square casings...

Is it easy to cut the mask to expose that section to the light or would I risk damaging it mate??

Easy peasy...it's just a thin vinyl from underneath.
Just don't press too hard so you don't cut into the plexi itself as it might distory the light a bit (not likely)

If you cock up the mask, I'll send you another free of charge in a letter, so the postage will be a quid or something? :]

I don't have a template for M series yet. (assume they're different)
If you're up for scanning it and measuring, you'll get 50% off deal from me as a "thank you"

If you'll wait a bit, I'm going to record a video of disassembly on mine for Ken who just enquired as well. It can't be much different (well the screws will be somewhere else) and it will give you a good idea what's involved.
