Making my homemade Race Engineering Pro OPAS Block Off's
Making my own blockoffs
Made of 1,5mm ss (316).
Had to make a template, and then got a friend of mine who is a metalman to bend it into shape. Then I welded on the mounting-brackets. Bolted og glued it on using sealbond...

I did the same with a piece of steel just for a test. They came out about the same as yours with only bending, cutting and riveting. I wish I had welding capabilities. Yours turned out nice and I'm guessing they're long term. Mine weren't obviously considering the material they were made from (oxidation causes rust). Nicely done!

Now... what about the colour? Leave it ss, or paint it black?

nice! do they feel as strong as they would if they were bolted to the opas bolt holes? Looks good though, I'd paint it black or powdercoat!

I would paint them black to match the hull
Is that a picture of you to the left? It reminds of a show on TV I saw recently about getting a mohawk haircut.

Yes it's me, but it's been manipulated

Black will be
I guess these block-offs are bigger than the Riva ones???
Should be better also...
What is the real purpose of these block-offs? Can you feel the difference?
