I like the setup Scott. It would be great to see a video of it tackling the whoops of Imperial County when complete. Keep up the good work. Believe it or not this will be the 3rd season on my Manx, I can't wait for mid October to come.

...keep em round, and mounted just high enough.... not TOO high.

And then, unbolt that A-arm front end, bulkhead and all so I can weld it up to my baja. Looking really cool friend.

Thanks guys, but I think i'm ging to take a brake from the show stuff for a while. I have the Pomona show this weekend, and after that, who knows. I still want to do the thing project, but it can only get done if the market picks up. Hopefully this thing sells and I can afford to do the next "THING".

Give me a call, I can put a few different packages together on a new one or this one. You just tell me what your budget is, and we can normally work with you. (760)744-8909 Thanks Scott
