    Looks real good Sam, I'm still at least another Month out before I build mine. I did acquire a real nice Jig Table, and I hope you don't mind me cluttering up your thread with it.

    Gotta get this 4x4 stuff done so i can get it in my Shop and set up! Its 1" steel top all blanchard ground and zinc coated. That rust stuff will buff off. Hopefully the zinc will not kill me! :eek:

    There are 2 sheets of the 1" sitting there.

    today we got the front end mounting done out front , attaching the fenders to the frame with two bolts , 3 dzus fastners at the back of the fenders. also im using 6 pins on the hood got them made today , now i will have to build mtg points for them off of the front down bars. and it will all be mounted. i plan on a lift off hood for easy refill of the moon tank with alky after each run , fenders only if I need to work on the mill for some reason or servicing...Im pretty happy with the way it is coming out. a little body work and paint and then assembly, well not that easy but i am getting much closer. thanks for the good comments, keeps this old guy working... sam
