Good idea w/ the heat shrink. When I redid my fuel lines, I used the clear fuel tubing used for watercraft ... I PD'd my plug wires (yellow) a while back too - Hehe.

Keep the rubber side down, unless of course you have a rubber head!

On a (thinking out loud) side note, why do skulls always have perfect teeth? That assumes a dentist or orthodontist was involved and makes it seem less bad @ss. I want to see a skull with teeth poking out in all random directions! LOL!

It's a 750 Ace. Nice bike but, they're a dime a dozen. It's not like he found a pristine example of a classic and started chopping. I'd say this is the perfect platform to start chopping on.

Those carbs turned out amazing but you lost me with the skulls. Too cliche. I am interested to see how this turns out, though. If you maintain the level of effort and attention to detail that you've show so far, this bike is going to turn out looking really good.

LOL, not to worry they are not going to be in your face on the tank, I plan on ghosting them in so they are buried in a layer of black.

Hey Blue, how do you like those Drag bars? I am looking to get a set but am unsure of what size to get.. Are they comfortable and what are the measurements?

Finally an Update

Well figured it was time to post some more pics and an update, straightened out all the fins on my rad, painted it with high temp engine enamel, painted over the chrome rad cover with a self etching primer and the same engine enamel. Also did the base coat on my tank, will be adding graphics and clear coating in the next few days.... Here is a couple pics for now..
