    Finally got my racks on. Went with Thule Feet, 44" Faring and Yakima Snow Board holder. I vinyl wrapped my fairing in White Snow Camo and it came out so good!

    I know most of you don't like the LED's, but hey, f*** you lol. I like em!

    Nice on the snow camo! I need to do something to my fairing. It's all effed up. It had some ghetto stickers on it from the previous owner (who was my friend haha)...and the sticky crap is still on it. I never thought of vinyl wrapping...

    Yeah man, thanks! The vinyl came out so sick and was fairly easy to do. Try using goo-gone to take off the sticker residue. And if your going to vinyl, let me know, I'll give ya a hand.

    I think I like the LEDs for photo ops, but I wouldn't want to be driving around with them every day

    Vinyl wrap looks cool!

    Welp, motors blown again :/ Cylinder 2 & 4 this time were low on compression. Already pulled it out and the block has been sent out to be bored out some more. Apparently the head of the spark plug snapped off and fell into the cylinder and chewed the **** out of the walls and piston head. Rings were squashed too.

    How many miles since the last one blew? What the hell are you doing to that engine??? I'm genuinely curious as to how a spark plug would snap off. That really sucks...

    it has 5k on the new built motor. Dude, I barely drive the car. i put 5k in 8 months. The car was never right from day one, so I'm assuming it's always been messed up they just kept directing me away from a destroyed piston. But, they are doing the right thing atleast and not charging me any labor to fix it. So I'm paying for new pistons and that's it. i'm not going to argue with them over that. Plus they have gotten a good amount done in a little time especially since the holiday. In 2 days the motor was out and already at the machine shop to be bored out.

    Got word today that my heads are f**ked up too (valves). So I'll be building the heads. Including porting, valves, springs, and a nice cam

    Damn that's terrible. At least they are kind of "warrantying" it and helping you out with that.

    Where is it being built again?
