    So monday or so we need to make an empi order for all your stuff..  Your old tin, well.. not much of it is what we use… but we will piece it together for ya.  we need some dual 40”s and such

    Yesterday was a great day.. Got levers and pedals in,  cleaned all the cable tubes out and started running cables and hooking things up like throttle and ebrake!  master cyclinder, brake lines are in…. blah blah blah… Looking good!!!!  and coming from apart!

    Great progress.  Sounds like it’s really coming together.  It’s looking good from the pics.

    Couple pics from yesterday. 1261D7FA-9893-4898-BC68-6852308D310FE669098D-AAA0-4DB9-857D-8D774B5A132D95BAA777-EF61-49FA-A762-A861B51CDE181E7295F7-70DF-4EE1-B431-2F8F107A7911

    Cable tubes were a bit backed up.  All cleared out now. 💩9E0BDC52-E7A3-47CD-90F4-642030E4D20E17FF6429-8BA9-4831-9259-9ADC21EE9A0F

    Brake line install is looking clean!!!

    That’s some nasty 💩 that you cleaned out. At least they had some lube on them.

    yeah… cable tubes are usually a messy job!!!!   but it sure makes a difference on how your controls “feel” and operate!!!  Things are going together… and everything is looking good… every piece we add to the pearl grey makes it look better and better!!!!! Still lots to do of course..  I need to get the beam painted so it can be assembled…  I need to locate your rims so we can get them dismounted, blasted and painted too… Still have bumpers to deal with too and the dc pedestal….

    2 more weeks???? 😎

    Drivetrain is looking good.  Can’t wait to see it come together, especially the front beam with those front disks.

    Keep the best one of those old tires to mount back on the spare.

    JJ body worked and primed the pedestal yesterday. Will most likely see some color later today.image

    I got started on trans assy. We need to order new bearings for the redux boxes. That should happen today along with a few other pieces as well. B99C40C1-633F-40B8-891D-D606CB190561

    Finished blasting parts this morning. We decided to lightly blast the wheels and keep the   tough as nails powder coat as a base.

    Working on tin fits and repairs this morning.EF8AA05E-F5A3-4691-A962-5F29359B5C34

    We will build it if it comes.

    Sounds good….Love seeing the assembly!

    Makes sense to wait on the  rims until you have all the white parts. I had no idea that those rims had already been powder coated.
