Thanks fellas... I really appreciate it... Well I've been taking a liitle break from the bench for a few days.... This build has been fighting me in almost everything I've tried to do.. So I decided to take a little break.... After a couple of days of I got back to it and I've got the headers done, and I decided to repaint the wheelie bars a darker color, I then took a toothpick with the tip sharpened with a hobby knife and dipped in some chrome paint to look like welds... more updates soon...

I've sanded and cleaned up the headers, and painted them with various shades of alclad and metalizer paints.. I've also started on the front brakes these are from Scott.. and I like them alot. still need to paint the calipers and add them here a few pics... 004-4.jpg005-4-1.jpg006-4-1.jpg008-3-1.jpg010-3.jpg
