    I did that years ago when I rebuilt a motor in my car, I thought I marked the plugs wires correctly but had them wrong before I marked them:oldlaugh: That was an uncontrolled downward spiral, but look at it this way, you won't make mistakes if you don't do anything. lol

    Do you have any pics of the paint job? That's a different spin on paint:old2:

    Kel you know I have to give you some harassing :oldlaugh:
    Get that thumb outta the way next time, ouch. Tip of the day, when something like that happens to a finger/thumb, to keep it from thumping, take a .015 drill bit between your fingers and drill a hole in the finger/thumb nail, it will immediately relieve the pressure.

    You have to do that as son as it happens. You can use a paper clip too, heat up one end till it is red then stick into the nail where it is blackest.

    I've been a mechanic / fabricator, almost my whole life and this is the first time this has ever happened.. really didn' even hurt that much and didn't even notice it until after I took my glove off like an hour later.. next day there was zero pain so I didn' think much of ir.. but that black nail just got bigger n bigger.. lol

    Update:

    Bike is back together and the valve clatter is almost completely gone. So much better. Granted I had a lot of noise from a loose valve guide.

    Lol.. I guess Donna and Derrick have a new one that's made pretty gnarly.. I'm shipping it off to Curtis and he is going to rebuild it using the new housing they have.

    It'll be right around 200 for Curtis to rebuild it with the new housing in comparison to 350.. so I'm just Gunna go that route.. Curtis is a good solid guy and I don' give him Much business.. I give Donna and Derrick a ton.. lol
