    I used one of those shifters on Firewing and loved it. I'm digging the color of the dice you are using. And I have always wanted to get one of those chains.
    Tick Tock 14 days and counting.

    I tried to mount the spring on the 3G fork but no luck . I'm going to take it to my buddy Eds shop he has a bearing press hopefully that will work better then my back yard press , Hahahaha [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I had the cap threaded but just couldn't get it down all the way so back to the drawing board .

    I need to try that black chrome sometime.
    Every time I see someone use it, it looks sick.

    This is what I used it's a single stage black chrome powder. Most powders are a two part application you would first put your base chrome color then add your top coat of a transparent color of your choice.

    Another hot afternoon in the garage wow . I did manage the accomplish something besides sweating. Some custom 3G action polished aluminum & black chrome. [​IMG]
    I brought my welder Eds press back to my house today to compress these big springs . I had to get creative but it worked good [​IMG]
    To put the fork legs on I tried a trick I saw a while back . I used a bolt going the opposite way to spread the clamp . Put the washer in there to block the hole so it would spread . I did this for two reasons ,the powder is thicker then the chrome & need some extra space also didn't want to scratch it . [​IMG][​IMG]

    It's back together I bet there not may out there like this if any.

    Cool idea on spreading the sleeves to get the legs in without scratches.
