Last July, I got a good deal on this '84 Interstate with around 40k miles.

We have a before and after, how did you reshape the shelter? They're originally shaped to fit the fairing on the 84 right?

Robin, we're picture sluts, not whores.lol Imgreco: We don't get paid. Nice job. Many would be interested in how you fixed the scoops/cut-outs in the faux tank.

I have pictures of my tank shelter process, but I need to pull them from various sources. I'll make a post with them soon.

Thanks for all the positive feedback!
