I really like the aluminum and black look of the vents. I know that i will be doing mine here before too long.
Anybody that needs a motor built should definately look into S&S of Spokane, WA. Nice to hear that others have used them, and are just as satified as me. I only have about 1500 miles now on the new engine, and am completely satisfied with their work.
I also have made arrangements with my brother-in-law to stay with them during the week of June 7th for the Arlington event. Can't wait to take the drive out there. I have already mapped out the longest, twistiest route available.

I got a lot done today. I put together my low-profile headlight buckets and put them in for a test fit. They look great and I put my own twist on them for a special effect. I can't talk too much about it, but I can't wait to show you guys! I finished making the wiring harnesses for them. That took a lot more work than I thought they would be.
I mocked up my speaker setup for a test fit and to see what it would look like. There is still some interior work going on.
Doing a special brake light mod. Again, can't spill the beans, but it is going to look awesome!
Finish painting all mounts, brackets and heat shields last night plus started to do a final sanding on my stage II scoops. I'm on 220 grit paper and I want to sand it in 400 grit before I send to the painter. Tonight I will finish sanding and since I already have the gas tank dropped, I was thinking about swapping my fuel pump to the holley high flow one that I bought.

I finish one scoop last night with a first coat of Auto primer after the days of sanding to a 400 grit... While that one was drying, I started to sand again on the other scoop panel. I'm on 220 grit work up to 400 grit.
Should finish these soon ,,,,,, I hope... NO MORE SANDING PLEASE!!
Took the toy out of its deep long 5 month winter nap - removed the winter covers - dropped in the battery - started on the 1st crank - washed it up and took it for a spin. AHHH finally, spring is back and lookin forward to the Wednesday night cruise nights.
changed oil, added sea foam to oil, new plugs, wires, cap, and rotor...then found the battery to be dead, gonna go get it tested tomorrow tore driver's door apart (didn't get put back together though).
An alignment! Man, this thing was way outta whack. I was like , when the monitor came on. OMG, I drove from DC to Frederick, MD then to Hagerstown, MD like like that? And survived? Bonebrake Alignment Shop did a great job, the ride back to Frederick was nice. No more driving on marbles, soooo stable.
