The fun parts over, now the real work begins.
I sure like that lift.
I've used that pallet jack for years before I got my table. They both have their good and bad points. I also have hooks in several places in the ceiling, where I can use a come-a-long to lift too.
Looks like you had a visit from Eric, with all those tools left out..
Looking good time to get to business
Note: that last picture was from the last rebuild.
This was my toughest day. disconnecting all the wires, labeling them, and bundling them. Spent about 4 hours.
Also FYI, I don't believe I've ever heard this talked about on here. On the pivot axle for the swing arm,
The bushing on each side screw in, so you can remove and install, without damaging the paint. This will be good info if your changing the belt also.
Got a full day in today. Just a little bit left to do to the frame, and it will be ready for primer tomorrow.
Still have about a days work left on the tanks. When they build these tanks at the factory, they use a lot of bondo to shape them. The paint stripper I use, is so strong, I'll have to reshape it.
I think I'll just sand the fenders down and paint over what I have. I don't think the fiberglass fenders will hold up to the stripper.
Since Photobucket was half way working, I thought I'd catch you up on the last few days.
Got everything striped down, but I forgot to take a picture of the tank before I started shaping it, but here it is ready to start sanding.
After a lot of sanding.
I just got done priming everything, and the tank looks good, just need to to do some spot pudding and smooth it out a little more.
Thinking about doing something different with the brake lights, what do you think.
Wow, an hour and 30 minutes to get this on here.
I'm leaning toward going back with a black frame, with the red tank and fenders. I think the black will set the chrome and polished aluminum off better than going all red.
What kind of a red?
I'm not a fan of two tone schemes but that's me maybe you'll surprise me

I think the brake light built into the fender would look great, does your fender wrap around low enough for the brake light to be seen straight on?
The red will be a surprise. My own mixture. The black frame isn't for sure yet, it's just that it is so bright, I think it will be to much.
Once the lens is cut to fit up in the slot, and with the defusers on the lens, it should be fine.
I think that's a good idea. Depending on what red you use, too much red can over do it.
Very bright red with black frame would look great but dark red and black frame I'm not sure
Just an opinion but I always thought black frame and coloured tins looked like half assed repaint, someone who didn't want to do a complete disassemble..but that's just an opinion, I'm sure whatever ya do it will look great.
I am not a fan of black frame with colored tins, in my "Humble" opinion, haha, the frame should be the color of the tins, when it's not it looks half ass, remember that's just my opinion, now if you think it's gonna be too bright then maybe tone the frame down a little, just enough where it's just a few shades off, just a thought, I am sure it's gonna look great no matter what cha do.
That's my thoughts too. Maybe I'll shoot it in color first, then decide.
