    I agree love the color but I am not a big graphics guy. Going to work on the details for the scheme.

    Hard part is that I am loving how things are turning out but I need to slow down and get things right.

    Can’t wait to get the karata open primary installed I have done the mock up and it looks sick on the longer frame. [​IMG]

    I saw it in person there wasn't any cracks and tapio drove it and no cracks. Lol

    If the chrome is done right it should be fine.

    Parts are boxed and ready to go, sport chrome is hands down the best I have used

    I spoke with Curtis about using them they are very high priced. You could buy new for what the charged but their chrome work is by far the best o have used

    I see that your sled has a ridiculously awesome flame job, and assume you want something different so what ideas are you thinking? And I agree that this is very exciting, but definitely take however long is necessary to get it right the first time. You are going to be so proud of this when it's done, and quite frankly so will all of us following your build!

    Sent a request for estimates on paint to Deano’s in Mesa Arizona and cutting edge illusions in Eugene Oregon. I have looked all over California and just can’t seem to find any painters that I will use.

    Got a quote for 2900.00 for the standard paint but I am looking to add some customizing to it. [​IMG]
    Paint is my next thing to do

    Of course always wanted an air brushed ed paint job but there is no way I could afford his talent.
    Plus shipping to the east coast. We are looking at making a trip up the west coast for this.
    Ed is by far the best I have seen and if he could come close it’s his to create

    There are many outstanding painters out there with talent, you just need to find them and see some of their work before choosing. I found a local guy to add the top graphics to my tank without touching the side graphics, perfect match.

    Looks like an S&s dual runner.

    Yes, it's an S&S dual runner. I have the same.

    Just got the motor back together and needs some polishing while I wait for my parts to return from chroming. [​IMG]
