Fitting the lower handguard

Its a Virgin kit, things just don't add up themselves...




Little at a time and check for fit often. If you take off more than you should, it will rattle and have a loose fit! Then you will have to rebuild that surface with sawdust mixed with epoxy.. Maybe i'll include this in my refinishing thread


Now the front, same thing..Little at a time and check for fit often. If you take off more than you should, it will rattle and have a loose fit! Then you will have to rebuild that surface with sawdust mixed with epoxy..



How is the fit? Something to be proud off ?? Oh yea!
The sharp edges on the wood are natural, will get a slight smooting once you put on lacquer or your Poly-Urethane.
If you dont like them this way, you can always smooth them out on an abrasive wheel or just 2 minutes of hand sanding by cupping the abrasive sheet in the palm of your hand - Topic for refinishing..
