    Default Its getting there...

    Finished the trailer over the weekend, cut the steps of, lowered the fenders and painted it. Added all LED lights. I picked up the powder coating last week,and started putting every thing together for the last time (I HOPE) All the PC is candy purple.Mounted all the brackets,rails, tank, seats, gauges, And a few other odds and ends. The engine should go in this week and then plumb it up and hopefully get it wet within the next 2 weeks.

    Friggin awesome Tim. Man that thing looks great. I like the choice of PC colors. I don't think I've ever seen that shade before. Also really dig he custom switch panel. Is that a oil temp gauge?

    Your seats are exactly what I was looking to do when I buy some new ones. I really like the cloth vs vinyl. Can I ask who did up the covers for you?

    Dan, Its the same color powder as my cruiser. That gauge panel is a custom deal i did. It contoures the oil temp guage and hides all the wires. It came out sweet. I didnt want to drill anymore hole in the dash, so I made that up.
    The seats were done in Anaheim, I will have to dig up the guys card. I had posted it on HB.


    Thanks everyone for the kind words. Its been 3 years coming. Complete resto from the gound up and I did it all myself. It was alot of work and even more money, but it will be all worth it the first time I mash the gas.

    Tim that's really looking nice! I'll probably be ready to drive up the other side of the hill in a couple weeks for the shakedown. Then PT 47.
