oh boy....

recently dished in the sides of my tank, stretched it, bondo'ed the rough edges, put a finishing glaze on, wet sanded everything smooth, threw 5 coats of high build primer on, wet sanded it again, put some some cleaner on that ended up ******* my primer job, tried to save it with some more wet sanding, didn't work. cleaned my carbs because some dipshit put diesel in a red GASOLINE can, made a set of forward controls, put on floorboards to compliment the kicked out forwards, etc etc etc a very long list and that's just the RECENT stuff
hand crafted VS intake, hand crafted exhaust, 42 slows and 136/140 keihin mains, hand crafted seat, handcrafted 2" risers, hand crafted shifter, fender removal, hand crafted seat plate, hand crafted struts, hand crafted light bar, longer spacers in the forks, and if I think of anything else I'll edit it in.

edit: after im done with my tank i'm going to sink a couple of spark plugs ive got laying around into my pipes and wire them to the horn lines. I cut my horn off for some reason, I think so my shifter would move freely.
weekend before last I constructed an air brush out of some brass tubing, an old cutting torch head and an old carb jet I had laying around. for the detail work that I will be doing. surprisingly, it works lol
