    after welding those bars together, i would retape them, just to see how many people would say "i cant believe that tape holds like that". :lol:

    Worked on it a little today.

    I'm harvesting the organs from a cheap generator light to make the light generator friendly. With all the cool lights in the B.O. I figure I better make it a bright one!

    Did some more work on leatherin' the seat. IGNORE THE BRASS BOLTS! I ran out of chrome. I still have to take the bolts out one by one and cement the lower edge. That will get the wrinkles out and take the stress off the bolts.

    First I put an under layer of leather.

    Then I wrapped it in luxurious white corinthian leather! :D A little wrinkly and some clamp marks but this is only my second seat.

    That new leather really changes the look of that seat, almost has a panhead look to it now. Dig it!
