Frame back from getting coated. Ended up using Advanced Custom Coatings in Hampton. I generally prefer to use local small businesses when I can. Price was competitive and work looks to be top notch.

All condomed up!



They plugged everything that needed plugging and even kept the coating off of the steering head bearing races.



Ohhhhhhhh! All the same color, instead of KTM grey and rub marks.



Did some maintenance and mods to the motor while it was out and got her back in the frame with new motor mount bolts and lock nuts.



Now that I have it back my Suspension cannot get back from Superplush fast enough!

Cannot wait to get to rippen up the dirt.

Cheers Ken

Brian,

Looks like you have good idea there. You might try ratchet straps on that arrangement. They should compress it.

Excellent "Chick" car going to Flea Market..locals first.

2008 Toyota Camry Solara Convertible 2dr SE - $11000 obo
Located in Moyock Nc/Tidewater Va area.
Selling a 2008 red w/black top Toyota Camry Solara 2door SE. 6cyl. Automatic w/manual shift option. Vehicle has just under 113000 highway miles. One owner, non-smoker, never wrecked, verry clean no smells. Has the power driver's seat and aluminum wheels. AM/FM 6 cd disc player with aux jack. Power windows, locks & top, cruise, Everything works great. I have performed the maintenance on this vehicle myself. The oil has always been changed on schedule. The Top "boot" (covers the top and its hardware when down) has never been used and is also included as is the owner's manual. Title is clear. No Payments, Nigerian "associates" etc or BS. Cash . Looking to sell quickly.
There are 3 items of concern, 1) The passenger side mirror housing is broken. 2) The airbag light is on (related to the passenger seat. Even if someone sits in it still shows airbag OFF). 3) It needs tires.** I will throw in 4 new Hankook Optimo 727 tires (100,000 mile tires).
N.A.D.A has clean retail @ $14,025 and Clean Trade In @ $11,225.

I'll try to get some pics..

Thanks Hooliken!

I might call Traxxion Dynamics this morning. With my schedule this week I could probably get one one shipped to me faster than I could get out your way.

Not a bad thing to have in the tool box anyway.

If I can't get one by this weekend I may shoot you a pm

Hopefully Sam didn't get a bike for his wife the way Chris (Upst8) got a bike for his wife. Did she ever even ride that thing?

Chris, if you're still reading, I'm down to the last few bits of my 350, just in case "your wife" needs more parts.

I made sure that it was a bike that I wouldn't mind whipping around. Lol thing weighs like nothing compared to my Xr650r
