Haha! I hope they do. My buddy pays for everything, so I can't say much, but he could certainly take better care of things.

Have I mentioned I do not care for header wrap before?

Even wet this one wasn’t that much fun.

Made the little strap out of parts left over from the gauge…now I know it will work, I will get a longer top bolt and flip the nut to the backside.

Been working a little on getting the new gauge wired up….so far, everything seems to work. Happy the fuel gauge works, we shall see how the rest of it works.

Still a ways to go on her, but she is getting closer to running.

Thanks! She is certainly a work in progress, much like all of them in my shed. :-D
