So guys.... i messed up my index finger pretty bad working on that one fender. I just didn't realize it. I sliced it pretty deep and can see the bone and i also got it slammed in the power sander and its all numb now and I can't feel it. Haven't gone to the doc yet because i put some superglue on the cut and it sealed it up and it hasn't opened yet. Im just hoping by tomorrow morning i have feeling back in my finger. If not i might have really damaged the nerves in it. But thats not gonna stop me from finishing up that other fender. I believe i also fractured something in my wrist after getting it caught in the power sander that was spinning at some godly speed. It hurts like a ***** and its all swollen. But i will keep you updated.

So heres a midway update. I go through the fenders pretty fast this time but the gas door presented some problems. We ended up sanding down all the fiberglass that it was supposed to mount to. And fiberglassed it all in. Now for the pics not completely done yet but almost maybe another hour before we put it on and i book it to work.

So i went ahead and rebuilt both of my front shocks. For those that don't know my front shocks are bilstien 7100 series resi's. They had a valving of 360/80. So when i rebuilt them which was tons of fun. (damn snap wires) but yeah i rebuilt them and revalved them myself. They are now 360/160 which is perfect, i love the new ride lol. But yeah i also cleaned them up and remounted them in a better position, the resi's that is. Here are some pics. Its good because they are outta the way now.

Untill i find a hose clamp big enough to go around the frame right there the bungee really doesn't hold it in its just a little insurance incase the hose clamp shakes loose or something, so the resi doesn't go flying all over the place.
