This is all you guys get! They are hardening in my bedroom now for about a week.

Had one minor issue with paint lifting, going to talk to mcneil about it.

mcneil are nice, and low cost.


Had a small area of paint lift... kinda upset about it but theres nothing that can be done without getting a new fender. SO, ill be covering the area with the 3M clear protector anyways, and it will stop the chance of peel back from stones. unfortunately the body shop took it down and re-sprayed it, but still it lifted.

total cost was $200 cash for paint, which for what id do with a rattle can i cant argue with. he gave me about $100 off because of the lifting.

Thanks!


yea it wont be too bad this weekend, other then the thunderstorm expected tomorrow... :/


Took the bike for an hour ride, its doing fantastic. no issues what so ever. favorite part was filling it for $19 on high octane, and getting about 60MPG. or 350kms per tank. just gonna say screw driving the truck in the summer.

well not a lot. a couple minor things, only one more major purchase.

past the upper arms, coils and shocks... ill be rebuilding the rear leaf packs. once that stuff is done, i'll be pretty much finished with the truck as its going to be where i want it. at some point ive gotta call it quits on blowing so much money, and ive pretty much had enough of not having a savings account. Its fun, but such a massive waste of $$$$'s


ill keep ya updated with the ongoings, wont be a ton for a little bit though.

Yep about an inch up top, 1.5-2" at the bottom to give it the kicked out look.
