Got my Ultragauge mounted. Now I just need to relocate the OBD2 port somewhere else son I can put the fuse panel cover back on.

Next is to try and fix a shaky passenger mirror and a driver mirror that doesn’t work at all.

I’ve got an ultragauge as well. To fit the fuse cover you’ll notice the connector on the vehicle has another set of holes 90 degrees to the set it’s using now. You can rotate it to point down and put one screw back in. With that I was able to plug in my gauge and close the cover. Though it is difficult to plug and unplug like that but it works.

In your second pic, what exactly are we looking at? Is that the factory mount all cut up and bolted crooked to the frame with another mount welded to it???

Any plans to protect the O2 sensor wiring? That looks pretty eager to get ripped out by some sagebrush or something kicked up by your tire...

I have plans to route mine over the frame too, and haven't decided on a game plan yet. How do you like the sound with the different muffler?

Good week for the cruiser. Added the LCP battery tie down and replaced the low pressure power steering hoses.

And just realized I left a paper towel in the battery tray.

In Pozo? The only thing that seemed challenging there was the stairsteps. Have you run those?
It was a Sunday Ride nothing challenging. Pine mountain does lead to the Stair Steps and they are challenging, My hat is off to you Sir if you navigated up or down them. I have only looked and went back the way I came.

It was simply a great time to get outside & see people. I was amazed at how many people are out on the freeway & roads.... good for them, good for us. TIME TO GET OUTSIDE FOLKS & get back to doing what you love.

Two years in the making...finally got the interior back together. It’s been nice being able to throw crap inside the cruiser without any care. Sound deadener has definitely made a difference though. Walmart cheapo floor mats are a nice touch even if they are a bit oversized and don’t fit quite right. Probably won’t cut them down and just leave them how they are
