    Just so you guys don't get to thinking I spend all day on mud, I took some pics of the 40........ the only major thing left to do is skin the tube fenders and paint them, but I have an endless list of small things to take care of before Tellico......... I have a feeling some all nighters are instore

    sure has come a long ways in a few months...........:cheers:

    Shows what a dedicated grease monkey can accomplish.
    here's a reward :banana:
    Great progress. Take plenty of pics 'cause it will not be
    clean/straight like this for many moons to come, if ever.
    Enjoy.

    That's ok...you'll help me on friday...with my list....Although I think I'm gonna try and do most of it thurs night once I get home...thinkin it'll be an all nighter thurs night. I think I'm gonna measure and cut the doors thurs night so that all we have to do is weld the top piece on there. Did you happen to look at the drive shaft on the 40?

    Looking damn good Virgo I was even a little impressed when I was looking at it a couple weeks back.

    Did you have a sec to see if that gas was coming from the tank or a line?

    It took JP and I about 3 hours to put them on...but most of that time was taking out the battery tray and taking off the gyroscope. We put the second one on in about 40 minutes though so it's not that long of a job. Just gotta be sure the 2 sides are the same hieght. A lot easier than it sounds. But they look badass, those pics don't do them justice, ya gotta see them in person.

    yeah it wasn't to bad of a job, just getting everything level and lined up is the challenge, i messed up the passenger side a bit, it's a little uneven, I am going to see if I can fix it with a heating torch and brute force.........
