I started attacking the Vespa restoration.

Missing clip on the left bolt hole.
I kind of dig this look.
Raise my haunches?


I like a little clearance.

As I pulled it apart, I kept finding little clips missing. I want to do this right, so one more parts order.

The biggest one was the cracked plastic panel that runs by the rear wheel.

Here is the question.

I like the way it looks when I removed the rear panels above the wheels. Instead of ordering a replacement for the cracked panel, we could shave these down to a narrow strip to cover the grommets on the rear fender, and give it a more aggressive stance by lifting the “haunches”?


Whaddaya think Oppo?
