    Help fitting Fabian bellypan

    got some parts from Fabian in Germany,having trouble with bellypan ,if anyone has bought one and fitted it can you show me where the brackets go ,I know I will have to line them up and then drill holes in bellypan to align everything,but my little brain can't figure out where brackets go on engine casings .

    If I were to guess......there one "front "center" mount and 2 side brackets.If the holes in the pan are pre-drilled.....you have a map.Even if they aren't.....plenty of bread crumbs.
    Match bolts to existing holes.......

          From Jan's post it looks like the side brackets go front...the center bracket somewhere under the rear.

            Check the reach to the threaded bosses on the crossmember.

                His stuff usualy has a "good enough" type fit. You may be driving yourself nuts going for perfect.
                Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                    make temp brackets from bendy metal - like aluminum soffit or cut up an old gutter. get things set up the way you like, then you have a template to bend the stuff from the kit to your exacting specifications. You don't ride around with the bendy bits, but you can then see the difference between what you have and what you want. a good vise and a hammer (or a rock) will force the kit to succumb to your will.

                    This is perhaps where the term "kit bashing" came from.
