2. Exaust comes off (new exaust will be here wednesday).

3. Pulling the rims and tires (wheels going out for power coat)

4. Pulling Pegs (New pegs will be here friday)

5. Pull trun signal lenses (new Blue dots comming on thursday).

6. Pull all crome (need to be pollished really really bad).

7. Mask off engine for frame painting (krylon black).

8. Clean up of engine (in frame LOL not that crazy).

9. Lube of rear splines (why not will have the wheel off any way).
Wish me luck !

I already have plans to get rear progressive shocks as for the front springs where can I get them at a good price. Good idea to change out the fork oil as well.

Spriddle the panter is going to do the paint and fix the dinger on the tank for 700 bucks about half price evey where else he already has the paint from a job that cancled.

When i told ya about the celtic flames I am cutting a few corners. I bought some Iron Horse tatoos TRIATIC Titanium / Graphite Titanium there vinyl but look hella cool. What we plan to do is once he has completed the paint and wet sanded I (yes I said I will.) will apply the graphics he will apply additional coats of red tinted clear to protect and seal in the graphics.

I also am looking at a mustang seat saw one on ebay that caught my eye for 380 with shipping. But im looking to see if i can get it cheeper.

Oh one more project came up. GRRRR the led light system had a slight melt down. Dam wires were so small they melted togeather have to re wire (using larger guage wire this time. (lessons learned):doh:

Ok here need some advise.

Since I am having the wheels power coated i was thinking that i will also need to power coat the final drive case. How much work am i looking at to tear it down and what are the consumables (parts that will need to be changed out)?
