thanks , and the best part is my bike is titled as a street/offroad/dualsport bike so when im done i dont have to jump threw hoops to get my plates
if i can keep the bike around 230 pound and end up with 60+ hp it should embarrass most sport bikes up in the mountian and canyon roads , of course with me being limited to about 140mph they will get away from me on the straights

Didn't see any '62's. Mine got an alignment this morning and then went into hibernation for the next 6 months, along with the '38.

I finally got the new plow all done on the 2011 truck. Man that was a pain to install and took almost 16 hours. Sometimes it sucks being anal and wanting an install to be clean and nice...

thank,Russ. It turned out ok. We didn't go the full distance on it but it's pretty straight, not eye popping straight though. Would have had to have it from start to finish for that. The Cougar parts guy seems pretty eager to see some pics of it...good someone can appreciate a 73 Cougar. hahahaa

Pretty much rained all day today so I couldn't sand blast my door jams but I did use some Mastercoat on the inside of the door shell. As soon as I can sandblast the weld seams, jam areas, and DA the new skin I am goint to shoot the rest of it with epoxy. I really wanted to get that done this week.

That door looks real good.

I didnt get much done from running around town trying to find the spray adhesive I like for the carpet and back and side panels. Had to order it from a auto parts store and they said it will be in tomorrow afternoon. I worked on fabing up a throttle cable bracket and a linkage to tie the carbs together. Going to start working on the fuel lines from fuel cell to the front tomorrow.

I beat the massive down pour we had toady by about 1 hour. Got the car and parts all sprayed in HB primer and doesn't look like I will have much to fix but I could be wrong, I was once, once.
