Well, the new doors are in the bed of the D/D right now and the wheels for the paddles and tubing for the cage are strapped down on the trailer. Tomorrow I'll go unload all that and go pick up the primer, paint, other supplies, and the new windshield.

I'll post pics up this weekend of all the new bling laid out on the floor.

You know Tim, I have a nice set of 6 bolt rims that we could mount those Paddles on.

I think that he is saying that he wants them for his rig.

Looking good Tim. Black really is the best color.

I figured that, but I still doubt the wheels are as good for them as the ones Tim has.

It's so close, but so far from it. Another 100 or so hours of priming, blocking, painting and buffing and then we get to put it all back together and then start the other mods.

I'm thinking that we'll be really rushing to have it done for the Shush hill climbs.

Here's the bling so far.
A pair of new doors. I wanted to take care of a few little dings on the bottom section and what a wonder ful surprize: No Rust!!!!


New wheels for the paddles



and the steel for the cage


I might be running a different set of wheels though. I have 2 other pairs that just arrived. I need to see what will work best for my application. spacers/adapters or not, aluminum or steel, and just plain looks.

I'll have the MSD box tomorow as well.

May be for the best, that climb has a way of mysteriously making paint disappear from the leading edge of doors and trailing edge of fenders.
