Don,
Thanks

Well the place I am doing all the work at ( and they did the whole painting of the 110 ) are friends that used to restore / repair high end exotics, so they are ANAL to say the least ( Doug has wittnessed it ) they tear me a new one everytime I say, screw that tiny dent, looks good to me, but not to them, when I did the 109, 1/4 of the tub was pushed in and they worked it old fashion ( heat & hammer ) and made it look brand new.

So when they told me, ( and I painted the wheels myself - with their guidance ) put 5 coats / 4 coats so if you scratch them will be fine..I did .

My 90's wheel look dull. I've used wheel polish and they look decent for a bit but once some mud gets on them they go back to the dull easily.

Fantastic job - the outside pics look great. I bet in person there is even more to take in.

Thanks,

Yes assuming Jonathan has the time, I will probably put one of those modular racks and crossbars , it will be easier for the RTT and the can carrier

Well, it all might depend.. she is taking a long trip in 2 weeks and I still need to finish the suspension and install the cage.

I am not the fastest or more qualified at either, so if I take her apart to install the cage and or suspension not sure if I will be done to ride her down.

Besides I just bought ( for wifey ,... it belongs to a friend ) a SWB Classic so I might drive her not sure what I am doing

WOW! Can't wait to see it in person next week! My 2 cents: I'm with Doug, I like it without the cage.

A little different uh?

Thanks again for next week.

Maybe is because I don't have the cage that I want it, besides I've spent 2400 pounds on her , so I might as well use it
