    Hey all...

    It has been a few weeks since I was able to update here. I have been waiting on getting bolts from Scale hardware so that I can get the rear axel and brakes on the frame, but I ran into a snag that I’m hoping someone here can help.

    I planned on using the 0.80mm bolts from Scalehardware.com, but I found out they were too short for my application. I have emailed them to see if they carry anything longer in the 0.80mm size, but I have not heard anything back from them as of yet. I was wondering if anyone on here know anywhere I can get bolts that are a 0.80mm diameter and at least 4 to 5mm long?

    Im kind of in a holding pattern until I can find the bolts I need.

    Just a small update. I decided on the paint today. I have been wanting it two tone Silver an Passion Pearl (Purple) but I didn't want just the standard two tone. Here is what I came up with... It will have three colors, (HOK) Orion Silver - Top, Kandy Purple - Middle line and Passion pear (bottom) - The silver will have a flame that will dip into the "Purple" and the passion pearl will have a flame that goes into the silver. let me know what you think.




    Here is a shot of the Frenched Licensen plate with the Frame that I'm going to use




    Thanks again for looking, as always feed back is welcome
