Time to make her look good again...

I have spent the last few nights working on everything I need to get the fairings mounted up and painted. I had to finish up the wiring on the ignition system, flush out the antifreeze out of the radiator, mount the radiator and do a few other miscellaneous things. As usual everything is rushed because Jeff only had one day available for painting.

So Tuesday night I start mounting the fairings. The tail section goes on perfectly. Everything lined up and looks great. I love those Sharskinz. I ended up pull all the rubber grommets from the factory fairings and using them. I hoping that will help things from vibrating out and stop any possibility of cracking later on. The fender and the upper were easy fit as well. Then I get to the final piece to mount and donít fit right. It has nothing to do with the fairings. My lovely exhaust system I bought many months ago is hitting the fairing. I just had to get the EVO2. Itís one of the best but you have to modify any race fairing to make them fit. So I start cutting. Finally I get it to fit and install al the fasteners. I thing I got to bed around 2am that night.



The next day I double check a few things and pull all the fairings apart load them in the trailer and take them over to Jeff. Thursday Jeff starts working on them right after work (around 2). I was able to leave early myself and went over to his shop to help. We managed to paint 3 colors and clear in nine hours. That included taping up everything and pin striping my number plates.



Also during that craziness I had to track down the UPS guy to sign for my Traxxion parts. I tried to get to the house early enough to catch him but missed him by an hour. I road around the neighborhood for about 20 minutes trying to find him. I gave up and called. Thankfully they let me pick them later that evening.



Well the fairings look good. This weekend I get to bolt the rest of the parts on and hopefully have it back together so I can take it down to NKYsigns Sunday morning to get the vinyl put on. Maybe I will have enough done were I can get some rest before next weekend.
