Too cool sanjoh!! Got a lot accomplished today but forgot my camera at the shop. Plus with all the excitement earlier this week, I almost forgot to meet our friends from Savannah in Nags Head. So I'm here at the beach!! The build update will have to wait until our return.

Stay tuned...

Nice work.

Let us know how you like the dominator lights. My previous research lead me to a single 7" round.

Santa also brought and installed my new engine guard / crash bar !







And these!! Yes, I broke down and bought them!




He also fabricated a new shifter for me. Check it out!



Progress is coming along very smoothly, despite the quick getaway to Nags Head.

Tomorrow, the PIAA lights and turn signals will be installed. I need the paint to arrive soon so I can really see the full effect. The windscreen should also arrive by the end of the week. One of the last things to consider are the luggages and how to mount them. Thinking about pelican luggages but that could change... Oh wait, I just remembered tires as well. Hmmm...

That's all for now. Thanks for tuning in and stay tuned...
