Going to finish up shortening up the pan today. Its going back the original metalflake with all new chrome, interior, wheels, etc. It will be nice but nothing crazy. At least thats the plan, as long as I dont get bored with it Very Happy

got it back from upholstery. Gotta find someone that can replate my rollbar, no luck so far. Just got my email from Winnie Meyers confirming it is a real manx. She is sending my papers and new badges, cant wait to get that stuff. Down to the roll
bar and wheels and tires.
