    Watching all the work on my DC, got me jonesing (no pun intended) to turn a wrench.  Started a bike project.  I decided to run all the lines and cables down the handlebars of my Harley.  I’m adding 14″ apes with chrome controls.  I don’t want any external lines, so I’m putting on an internal throttle and a hydraulic clutch.

    So far, the hydraulic clutch is installed, not yet plumbed.kPAx6VUlRdCaoU2yOnFcfAHVKWxOrCRlyCbet7FYxLwwL3kDw7o2SbKB5Ry06%N%%A

    Pulled the tank to get access to the wires and throttle cable.  Once I get the bars delivered, I can measure how much I need to extend everything.

    Last of the bits pulled from the shell.

    Chris started stripping the front floor. Looks like it was rusty and they buried it in bondo them rinolined over it.

    Left and right sections will need replacement maybe the whole floor. We’ll see after blasting. 3950EE41-01A0-4F8B-9F3B-4D10F2AF0763BA351486-E43C-4F6A-A3EF-D9FEDD679B51

    I’m glad I brought my truck to the right shop!  When you are done, I’ll know it was done right, with the pics to prove. No more cover-ups.  Loving the updates!

    Best kind of advertising ever! Congrats JJ/KCW, and congrats to you Mike for a stunning DC in the making. I love watching the updates.

    Hold up….so you’re saying that’s not a legit repair technique?  The broke high school version of myself respectfully disagrees. 🙂

    Chris started blasting yesterday on this. Looks like he’s working from the top down.6BD358F7-7976-4ECC-BE33-DB423B496951B04AB828-C8D0-43BD-8C43-940D01AFE294

    Very nice!  I can’t believe how fast you all worked my DC!  Those gates are gonna look sweet.  This weekend, I’m gonna work on getting the tiny little block that is next to the latches off my old gates.  When I dropped the truck off, Franz said those are impossible to find.

    Damn, I love seeing this on the routisserie.  I thought the underside was pretty clean. Nice to get confirmation once the previous materials were remove.   Keep up the amazing work and the updates.
