Thanks guys for sticking with me! Thanks, Tim! Whenever I build something, I stress the little things big time. My brother and I are both avid model builders (him more so than me these days, unfortunately), and we're always going to extra mile to add details that add the smallest pieces to the story. We agreed that in a lot of ways these projects are like big model kits. Big or small, the little things matter. Maybe I told you this already, but back when I was building my Triumph I made a custom parking pass to put on the left front fork. Kind of like the old Missouri motorcycle registration stickers. I stitched together pieces of old postcards and added a slew of my own design elements. The Arrow Head Motel was a historic motor court in Columbia, Missouri. It sparked my interest in neon signage and was the subject of my first published longform newspaper feature. Anyways, the shock stickers have a similar feel to this. I should do a sidebar on it one of these days! That is some good trivia! I'll get the full scoop from David next time I'm up at the shop. Thank you for the encouragement, Brian. It's fun to flip back and forth between your thread and mine. I've been loving your progress as of late. Let's keep this going! Thank you so much. I'm having so much fun and learning every step of the way. What's cool is that I can definitely feel myself becoming more comfortable in the shop, with the tools and with the car itself. I can assemble and disassemble it at the drop of a hat, which I know will be very helpful in the coming years. I appreciate that! I feel like we're really gaining momentum. Nothing beats the ol' plumbob! Feels good to be able to move forward. I've always loved the glow of neon. I'll try to shoot some more next time I'm up there late (hopefully soon). Thank you! That is a completely fair question, and it's one I had myself. Two things. 1) I jumped around between holes, never filling a full hole at once. This allowed for some cooling. 2) Post-weld I measured everything when I drilled for the F-1 shock mounts. Using my Mocshocks as a rigid guide, the holes landed in the same spot on either side, meaning that everything is in check. I hope it stays that way!
