It's been an interesting ride, and I'm not stopping soon.

Stock, July 07:

I'm getting a bit bored of the blackout look, as much as I do love it. I was thinking of adding light blue accents, these three first:

fender stripes

new caliper paint

pinstripes on the hood (following the cowl line)

Added some tips to the stock muffler.

She does look good! I know what you mean, I have a black and blue theme going on somewhat but I'm gonna continue once I find a good colored and priced caliper paint kit and some other things I want.

Do it. I think it'd look sweet. It was one of the ideas I was playing with.

I don't think the lip look would work with the ROH's, the spokes extend right to the edge. I'd need a bit of a recessed lip for that to work. Maybe when my tax return comes in...

I know how you feel, I'm still dragging my feet on my idea for the 077s, I'd rather do something that has a lip....

I go to a decent amount of meets and shows. I have the very sought after black housing clear corner headlights, and I'm getting my tails redone in a high gloss soon.

oh ok. anytime soon?

Probably once my ROH's go back on in spring.
