Send her over Moe!! I`ll teach her how to ... uh.. Sand, yup that`s it, Sand. :doh:

Fork seals done and re-installed on front of bike.
Tank, groundpounder, bat-wing,front fender, all sanded (to bare) and primered.
Sidecovers primed, and front wheel shined up.
Next up, finish hard-bags and test mount them. Then pull N fender and prime bags and fender.
Bike has probably lost 15 lbs, just by grinding all the paint off. :think:

Yo Danny, have tsukie (?) hard bags, got them from Scott about 5 yrs ago.

Cut out where the signal lights go to fit them in closer to the fender.
Probably should have moved the signals down further on the fender,
but why do things the easy way. :doh: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Been busy working with Dirt Road Dave for the last while and catching up on my work
with the home repairs for the agents when I`m home.

Murf, Sayjan and I spent the afternoon in the garage today--sanding, sanding, play fetch, sanding
then some 40 Creek. Yup, the boys worked up a thirst :lol:

Knowing your luck, I don't think you really have a choice in that! You may want to think about how you can make the feather stuff (splatter) blend in...if you can't beat'em, join'em so-to-speak.

Hauled the pieces and parts to Dave`s shop on Tuesday--Hydrigrafica and got busy. :)
Paint sprayed on and trying to figure design and pattern. :think:
Wednesday lay out designs and tape off parts. Dave did a SUPER job dipping the parts :cool:
Thursday, crank up the paint booth and shoot the clear coats (3) :dance:
Home in Trenton by 2:30 pm. :) :)

Will be buffing and polishing this weekend before installation.

For some reason, the song Copperhead Road is playing in my mind :think:

No pics `til it`s back together, heck, Lizzy never even got to see the paint :lol: :lol:
