    Hello guys,

    I'm back :):).

    Finally I managed to mount the tri-power.
    I decided to buy another intake polished, I replaced the valve covers,
    the distributor and the spark plug wires. I feel satisfied,
    I think it was worth it

    Hi Stroker :), I used Wheel Vintiques rims 15x7" rear, 15x6" front
    with bullet center caps, G78-15 Cooker tyres.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Thanks to all

    Noticed you with your camera equipment in reflection on bumper. All your pics are really nice and clear. What type of camera are you using. Yeh i know " off topic". You want to live in usa ok gimme your business truck and harley and ill give you my citizenship with obama and unemployment and you could sit here and watch others around the world prosper. Believe me buddy when i say we are all flying on the same ship and are all brothers on the same path called life. You are very fortunate and obviously a tremendously hard worker. You have an exceptional eye for detail and perfection. Been a pleasure to follow and will be stealing many of your ideas. Thanks brother

    Yaaaaaay! Believe me, I was on that same path until I spent some time here to see how its really done. Of course, there is more than one way to skin a cat but the chassis swap is definitely not necessary...

    Yea, and hey Jim, nice new avatar!
