Christmas goodies. The Walsh pegs are incredible..

Dropping frame off this week to get blasted and Dad offered to pay to get a gusset kit welded in. So stayed tuned.. Woooo.

Thanks Douglas. Trying to locate a sand blasting company close to me is a pain in the rear.

You can always use aircraft paint stopper to Darren. Then get it done yourself. I was lucky my friend had a sandblasting pot. So I did mine myself.

I thought about that Gene but was told its very messy. I think I figured it out though. The frame will go to lakeside, OR for blasting, then Dad is going to take it to Winchester Bay OCP to have gussets welded in, and seat posts repaired. Then its going to come up here and I am going to get everything powdered. Currently looking for a good powder coater close by. This quad should be ready to run by spring break.

Was debating if I should even bother updating, but here is some updates regardless.
Frame and parts back. Tried to match blue to my oem hood best I could. This is what we came up with. Did not want red frame again.

This rebuilt led silencer is going to look great.

Chrome all came back months ago

Traded for some flex bars

Scored some free tires

89 oem decals for swing arm

I think that's it for now.. Still need a ton of parts to be able to fully finish.

So I used a guy who I thought was a chromer. Turns out he is just a middle man, and sends out anyone's parts to all over, even to mexico chrome shops. I actually feel kind of lucky I got all my little nuts and bolts back. Here's a pic of the oem shifter where they didn't chrome it all the way. Where that round piece is that holds the rubber on is bare. There's also various other imperfections in all my parts.

I can already tell my parts will rust really quick. I'm still happy , but I won't go through him again.
