Outstanding work Mark! Are you going to put a sleeper on it and if so will it be a Pete hi-rise or flat top, or? Again great work!

Mark,

Very nice work, looking at this makes me wish that I went all out on my suspention as well.

Do you have a link for the K&S air cleaners. Will be watching this one.

The nuts and bolts are just 00-80 rc airplane stuff. Micromark, even some hobby shops have them. The air cleaners are the stainless sheet that K & S sells in rolls, like Renold's wrap, only very

thick. I covered some old AMT Peterbilt fuel tanks, sanded smooth, with Scotch double sided tape, making sure there are no gaps or overlays, and stuck the stainles wrap to them.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
