New Rear Attachment Plates

We have finally machined up a set of the new rear attachment plates.  These plates work to attach the QNT trike to the back of the shell.  Here is a picture of them
Previously I used to laminate up similar parts out of quite a few layers of glass and carbon fiber.  It ended up taking a fair bit of time and material cost was more than for the aluminium.  While the composite parts are working well I can see that there may eventually be an issue of the softer composite part wearing on the aluminium part it attaches to.  We now have a few in stock for future orders. Here is another picture of the installed.

The rear attachment plates for the Sprint NT are slightly different.  I have started on the next order and once we a far enough along with it I will have some more pictures.
