And again one month is over and just very little progress  :-[
Only a little bit of work on the Hudblock, I managed to build the Bolts for the Fishbowl and also the Sensor.
And of course the Glareshield I received by Tricky  :thumbsup:

Ahhh yes, I know the feeling  :-\
Many pit builders start with fresh enthusiasm and have a (not realistic) planning to have the pit finished. After a while, they recognize that life has its ways to mess up the planning of a pit builder, and a new more realistic planning is accepted  :taz:
Needless to say, the planning is still too optimistic  :harhar:

Everything looks fantastic. IMHO if the glareshields were mine, I would spray a clear matte over them or something else to dull that shiny gloss finish. The real thing is a flat black.
 However, you may actually like the gloss color and if that is the case, then I will shut up and let you build your own pit.... :outof: :hiding:

@sagrzmnky,

You beat me to the punch.  I was going to suggest the same thing.

Yes, you're right and the Glares still need a final coat of black and a matte finish. Also some holes have to be drilled for all the parts going to be mounted on it (Lamps, Eyebrows, DED and so on).

My plan for months now (!) is to mount the indexers on the glareshield.
However, up till now I did not find a drawing *where* the indexers should be mounted.
Does anybody have a sketch or drawing for the position of the indexers ???

Here are the templates by @Willy I also used for my selfmade Glareshields I did first:

As far as I can see there is the position of every needed hole...
