Re: I\'m done, hooray!
Yep got it all finished, finally... Didn't get the new shock till two days after as the supplier missed the courier the day I rung. Took me three days including travelling up and down twice to an engineering company where I used their tools to shorten the shackles back to 0.75" over stock. Had to grind the shape back in the shackle plates to clear the bumper and this took most of the time. Each set (seperating, cutting down, redrilling, regrinding) cost me about two hours including travelling up and down to the shop. At least you had help, I had to do it on my own and I can tell you it is a P.I.T.A. as you have to manhandle everything around.
Got no pics yet as my girlfriend is on a holiday till after the first week of August and has the digicam with her.
I haven't sorted the fuel tank out yet, but I am off next week an intend to take the fuel tank out, repair and respray, fit a 2.5" straight through exhaust including headers, regasket the Weber carb adapter plates, take some rust out of the pass. side fender, in front of the cowl and the wind screen surround (glass has gotta come out again), respray, fit rear corner and rocker protection, respray my wheels and hopefully if time allows, take the whole interior out, derust and repaint/spray the inside floor.....
Man I am gonna be busy... Just hope the weather clears up as it is pissing down with rain at the moment.
