I can see that handbook from Home Depot "How to wire your hot tube & toaster" has been a good investment.

Luv those books.

I can TIG aluminum but i can't assure it will look factory. There are several guy on KSL who claim to be good.

I had to do a similar recreation on the XR after Baja.

Thanks harcus. A friend told me about a guy that works at a local marine shop if I can stomach $150/hr...

If you don't mind looking at it I'd be grateful.

If it wasn't orange you could live with JB Weld and a hose clamp.

Hard to keep your eyes on the road with all these mountains, and rocks, and creeks... I am sure I will get used to it eventually. Speaking of which, maybe I will go snowshoeing today. Then sit by a pool. You have it all here.

Oh yes, and I am also looking for a job. Really. Two applications today. Einstein bros. Both. J/K. Only one, and it was an industrial controls company. Anyone hiring a tech? :)

Looky at what was added:

These batteries are super small and light.


There is also a fuse box tucked away back there.


Because I have devices from multiple different makers, and they all have different color schemes for the wires, I marked all the wires with vinyl-stickers so that any future re-wiring can be done much more quickly.

On the tig job, check with Dustin @ Dp Custom Fab p: (801) 979 7879

Very experienced with aluminum & tig, builds everything from custom UTV suspension to trophy truck parts.

Another would be Iron Horse Customs here in Sandy, they are doing a bunch of bike work for the Nitro Circus crew as well as building a Trophy Truck.

Both can handle some very clean weld requirements.

This is where parents post the obligatory "cute photo" of baby sleeping all content and happy, when in reality, there's a parent standing close by, sleep deprived, sun deprived, and beaten down harder than after a long day chasing GISkev around Sonoran desert.
Congrats!!!!
