MARTINSR I had to stay late tonight because one of the guys lost his car keys. He ended up finding them in a garbage can! double

Tonight at home, all I got done was to fine tune my package tray template.

MARTINSR If you can't get behind it (but I think you can) you could pull them with a stud welder or tack weld a small piece of metal to it and pull up on metal then carefully grind the weld off with a cut off disc and remove the piece of metal.

Here is a little "Basics of Basics" I did on the "Pogo stick" and it's use. http://autobodystore.com/forum/showt...ler-Pogo-Stick


Not saying that you would use a pogo stick on that, but the metal tabs in the "Basics" could be used. A pogo stick like way, or a slide hammer could work too with the same welded on tab. The upper edge above that weld is very strong so to lay something over it like a piece of 1x2 piece of wood a foot long or something like that could be laid up on that edge and then using a tab made from a large washer you could put a screw driver through the washer unto the wood and pull up, pulling the low spot up.

Not sure what to do with it ??? I don't see how I could ever get behind it to push the low areas out ??

Then a few blocks down the street I'm sitting in the right turn lane waiting for the light to turn. Just as it does, I start pulling forward when I feel something hit the back of the Burb! Look in the rear view mirror, and nothing there. Look in the side mirror, and there's an old Honda stuffed between the Burb and the curb! Curses! I'm really pissed. So I get out, and this old Asian guy starts backing his car away! I holler at him to stop, and he actually does! I grab a pen and paper, and go to his window and ask for his license, registration, and insurance card. He jumps out and runs up to the side of my Burb and begins trying to rub the marks off. I grab him and push him away, and tell him to keep his hands off. He keeps telling me it's OK, and nothing is hurt.
I finally get him calmed down, but he insists that I need to "help him", and not turn it over to the insurance. I demand his info, and when he wont give it, I bring out the cell phone to call the cops. Then he starts whipping out $20's, and asking me to take money. He's also mumbling in broken English about his brakes failing.
Now I got curious just how bad the damage was, so I walk over to the truck and look. Seems like my rear bumper tore up his front fender, but all I see is some rub marks in my clear coat, and can't feel anything. I walk back and he starts counting out bucks again, and when he gets to $300, I told him we were good. Not sure how well he understood English, but he sure understood when I was ready to call the cops. I told him to go get his brakes fixed, and left.
Took me a couple minutes to buff off the marks when I got home, and now it's time to pull the headers off my BBC, and take them to be ceramic coated! Compliments of my new sugar daddy!
I had a guy do that to me a few years ago, sucker was trying to leave and I had to get in front of him like a frigging highway patrol car stopping in front of him pointing to the curb. I didn't want to deal with it as there was just another small flaw on the rear bumper and when he pulled out $20 I took it. But as soon as I did and he left I was sorry I did it. My car was damaged and the dude didn't stop, for that reason alone I should have forced him to go through his insurance.

Ouch. That hurts. My time is coming so I am not going to get cocky.

I hope you can work the weld out.

John long Fortunately my day was not that exciting.

I am working on the wheel house in order to be able to fit the new outer half and also fit the quarter panel. At least I am getting my five minutes a day again.

Glad it went well.

Fortunately Oregon only wants the last state of registration, so the Illinois documentation is all he had to give them. He had that title, and a bill of sale. He also had a bill of sale from the local seller, but I told him to just keep it in his pocket, and not muddy the waters. Sometimes less is better with DMV, as it confuses them.
One of my fears was his smoothed firewall, as we had to reaffix the firewall tag. But DMV was only concerned with the dash tag, which we also had to transfer when I replaced the dash top. But they were happy with all of it.

Brian
turning it into a supermoto would be really fun around here on all the mountian roads

mod the engine a lil bit get it up around 45hp and it would flat out move considering the bike only weighs in at 230 pounds

its a 4 valve 250 actually , honda later switched to a single carb on this engine and picked up 2 hp but with a few other changes mixed in as well, the second carb actually doesnt open up with the first it has a slight delay in the opeing when u twist the throttle

the bike revs and accelerates smooth as can be well see how it does when i put it threw its paces this year , this bike will see everything from trail riding to desert races , to a few trips to the local motox track after i swap out the front forks to a set much better suited to jumping

this engine makes 34hp and 24fltbs
xr200r engine makes about half of that 18hp and 12 ftlbs iirc
