    They look good!

    On a not so great note, alternators seems to have missed the boat. Literally. Still waiting to hear back from georg and crew. Looks like i might need to send the old one to get repaired in the mean time

    I love that this thread is still categorized as a mild build!

    I hope you are at least convincing your wife since none of us are buying it! :)

    Update a long time coming. Work has been kicking my butt, working on a project with china has me on china time these last few weeks and my whole schedule is fubar.

    First off a big shout out to @wardharris and Georg @orangefj45 over at CruiserBrothers. These alternators are awesome and no more electrical issues. Installing was a different story. The old alty did NOT want to come out and had to be persuaded with a mallet and crowbar from all angles. Took about an hour and a half to take it out and 30 min to get the new one in

    So pretty!

    Ive been driving her all week and it has done wonders for my soul. Stress level is down and overall happiness is as high as it can get based on my schedule. I wonder if i can use it as a tax write off as a health benefit :-D

    Again I want to thank Georg and Wade and the rest of the folks over at valley hybrids and cruiser brothers. They were professional and kept me in the loop even though we had a little bump in the delivery process. Looking forward to purchasing their brake and rotor kit to improve the slightly underwhelming braking on the old girl.

    Great pics Andrew!!!!
    The pic with the old alternator cracked me up!

    Thank you so much for hanging in there even though we had a hickup with getting the parts to you on time.

    Glad everything worked out!
    We just ordered a number of these alternators to install on customer vehicles as well!!!

    Is your HJZ75 radiator copper or brass? My HJ75 one is. Local radiator shop should be able to fix and/or recore it. Even upgrade the core while they keep the stock end tanks for a stock look. Just a thought... Did it in my old BMW to solve overheating issues in Florida summer traffic.

    I am a very sad panda today. Old Iron Rad arrived... but in a damaged state. Working it out with rob, just hating UPS right now


    You can see the bent bracket and the pushed in and collapsed fins from some rhino slamming the thing into the ground or whatever.

    Kudos to Rob on the fit and finish, just hate that UPS is a jerk. I dont think i could have packed it any better than rob did.
