My project
« on: September 11, 2017, 05:05:45 PM »
Hey yall, this is my small "kinda" build that I am starting. My quad has been giving me fits lately so I said screw it I'll revamp it a bit. Plan is to go to a duner set up, back to the factory 87 plastic, extended swing arm, super lights, new exhaust, 41mm carb, rtc air shrouds, esr goodies, and more chrome.  Atleast that's the plan. I am hoping to have this done by spring , because we're putting our house on the market., and I will not want it torn apart.
After pulling my gas tank I found out my head stay is cracked.

Good bye old buddy you served me well.

Holy smokes I have alot of polishing to do

This is the kind of a idea what I'll be shooting for. Except I am getting a blue hood from Broken1 and different rear plastic(hopefully)

Here's where I finished for today

I start back up on school here in a few weeks, so progress will be slow. I am hoping to have most of my plastic polished and restored before then. Ill be ordering a new exhaust in two weeks, and if my tires and wheels sell on Craigslist, I will order the +4 swing arm.
Hope you guys enjoy

No real update today. I was supposed to be working on cleaning garage cause I gotta hang dry wall. I got distracted and messed around with my tin shed fried oem rears. After pulling the R sticker and seeing it so pristine under it. I actually may be able to salvage these. Or just say F it and buy brand new Fullbore plastic, which is possible. Hmmmm

This makes me think if you clean up a set of fenders. If you put a clear vinyl wrap over them. They should stay looking good. Maybe have to replace the wrap ever once and a while

Small update for those who may be interested in this project.
Took off my oem decals today with the help from a hairdryer. Thanks Kevin for the tip.

Also cleaned my tank to prepare for polishing

Hopefully I'll get to start restoring my plastic this weekend. Other goals are going to be ordering some gas caps and other billet parts before cascade officially closes. Order some RTC shrouds and sweet talk my wife into letting me order a extended swing arm. Stay tuned there will be more updates to come.

Yah he was. I would have talked to him alot longer but my wife was freaking out, how we needed to get going. I sold my sand tires yesterday, and I am now trying to figure out what I want to order next. Leaning towards a +4 swing arm.

Quick update. Small as it is.. cascade gas cap & reservoir cap came in. Tomorrow I'll have a huge (in my mind) update on parts I'll be picking up. It'll get it half done..

Had to hurry and order before inventory ran out. Top dog shipping was one day shipping, super fast
