Got the swing arm and shocks on this evening before we quit. Will start on the wiring tomorrow.
Shain was working on polishing the controls and other little parts.

Lookin good fellas!! Watch out Shane, Shannon is an Ferocious beast when it comes to working! He puts in more hours in one day than most men do in two. He dang near k.o.ed me when I was there. The first 3 1/2 days I was there we logged 52 hrs. I will say this though if you can keep up the man can flat bust the work out!

Super excited for you I know your gonna love your new and improved k-9 Dragon!!

I only wish that I was more useful. About all I do is polish parts, and help alight the occasional cumbersome part if I reallyknew what I was doing, I think this could be done much more quickly.

Forgot to tell about the oil tank. I was fixen to install it, and I twisted off the oil cap, and was like, Why is it so hard to turn? Felt like it had sand in it from when they sand blasted it. So I decided I better make sure there wasn't any in the tank. So I poured some acetone in the tank and swished it around. Pulled a plug and poured it in my hand. All sorts of sand came out of the tank. Them assholes, sand blasted it with out the cap on it.
I flush it out with water till I could feel any more grit comeing out, then flushed it some more. Then fill it full of oil, and drained it out. Didn't feel any grit in the oil, so hopefully it's good.

OMG........Any sand or foreign material in the oil would suck big time. I would have to punch somebody in the throat to get over this. Well, almost!

Hey polishing parts takes longer than putting them on that's for sure! That's a big help for sure

I'v gone just about as far as I can till I get the few parts back from the chromer. Guess I better get the paint job done. Shain finely decided on a flame style.

Got the LED light show on with the rest of the wiring. Also waiting on a new clutch from the Kaptin.
Shain did a great job on the polishing, Just have a couple pieces to touch up.
