My 80 is parked at my fire station and I was laying under it looking at all the connections I'll need to loosen to install my new springs and shocks. When I got out from underneath, I noticed: SOMEONE HIT ME!! Hard enough to pretty much wreck the factory fender flare on the Rear Passenger side, also a pretty good size dent in the rear quarter panel due to the pressure on the flare. My question is this: I'm finally converting this from by wife's DD to my toy, and was wondering if anyone out there has just taken all the flares off, what's involved, and how it looks. By the way, this board is great, it's been very educational. I was going to sell the 80 and buy a 40, but now am confident the 80 will be all the beach cruiser I need. Thanks for everybodys feedback in advance.
