try to hang these rear wheel wells over next couple weeks. And a vertical park part for velotilt, made of quad-axial, plain weave. One on each side coming out the trailing edge of each wheel well. You can park VT vertical.

That will help folks a lot to be able to stand it up. Not an easy feat to add a heavy duty strut to the back of the tilter wheels I imagine.

big tall boots on my laithe now! Easy-Clean. The two 4"x4" sq steel tube was $10.71 and red spray can. Rubber pads come with laith. Matches the mill. Ya need a mill and a laith unless u have deep pockets. With a velomobiel shop it saves you a small fortune and time over the years.


Added a left red steel horizontal guard for gear house w/plastic cover and a way to pick up the laith. Gonna make another for right side.



Million mods on youtube, many great channels.

A mod to cover motor area. Inside chip guard filters over holes and l made the lil' blk angle in corner. All phillips heads in garbage, hex or allen heads.

With some extra work from the pros that invent the mods on youtube these are great lil' machines, You can go to class on these machines on youtube for adjustments, maintenance, and more.


-----------
Also front motor house hole chip cover, l punched holes in thin piece of aluminum and put it on with hysol or super glue works too.

I made another carbon block, this is how you make it square.

Just subscribe & hit the bell on this channel.
--------------

Also a great trick: do not use cheap one piece harbor freight vice on your harbor freight mini mill, use a 2 piece vice on your many mill. Just shop or make one.


----------------------------
If you do decide to buy mini laith, below is 7 by 14 instead of 7 by 10 like the HF mini laith. Just 100$ more. And the service of this usa company. My laith was 30% off with cracked plastic cover that l fixed and painted.

Vertical parking strake, one on each rear outrigger:
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Working on plug inside of the inner skin wheel pant on right side rear of velotilt. It's an extension of the outrigger. It will be quad-axial & plain weave. I will make next outriggers aero shaped and carbon. No aluminum. Try to build next Velotilt with no aluminum.



More cosmetics at trailing edge and more work on vertical parking strake but it looks good with the rear windows in .
