Thank you very much. That means a lot. Especially from you guys who do this for a living.

Thanks again,
John

If Bond was too hokey for you, I'm betting Star Wars wasn't a "must see" either...

It was nearly terminal to wait for the next one and then along comes Harry Potter......then Lord of the Rings, etc....guess I'm just a sucker for "escapist" movies.

It will be hard to see much with the quarter inch of dirt on it. Barb and I road it to the west coast a few years ago to see old friends in Vancouver, Wa. We were on the road for 23 days and 5600 miles.....Great time.

Summer before last we road to Hilton Head, NC. Good trip too.

'05 Electra-Glide Ultra. Now has about 30,000 miles on it.

The only other corner of the garage you have not seen holds my 1977 John Deere Garden Tractor. This old girl just refuses to quit....

Don't let his tears fool you Mitch. He has his own stable of Harleys to ride. Even an old Pan Head.......

It is premature to install the floor pans but I could not stand it any longer. I began to make some patterns for the rear floor pans. I believe they will work out pretty well but lots of work yet to do.

Don't be making fun of me. You know how sensitive I am.

It appears this rear floor pan can be made in 2 pieces. Still have to add an inch or two to the front and it is a little short to the inner quarter but it should work out well I think. The bends up and around the drive shaft hump and at the rear where it turns back over the axle will be less angular or more rounded when they are formed into metal. Getting there though.

John

Yes there is David. I will draw it out and down over one of the English Wheel anvils as I did with the door skin but with more force. For the tighter bends I have a couple of T-dollies. One has about a 1 inch radius and will make a nice roll with a rubber mallet.

I will ask Barb to take some pictures of the process when the time comes.
