It's coming along nicely sticky!! And I can see why you like that pic! :thumb:

As for the 3 jerry can holder, where are you thinking about putting it?? 3 Jerry cans is over 60kg of weight in the fuel alone, then there's the jerry's plus the weight of the holder itself; do you really need all that weight/all 3 of them?? If you can't do without or even just with fewer (2 or even just 1??) then at least try not to hang the holder anywhere out past the pivot/load bearing points of your suspension, or you'll be stressing your chassis something horrible and just asking for chassis failure/breakage down-track sometime!! :eek:

That red rocker cover doesn't look quite so flash when it's all covered in mud splatter!! When you gonna clean it off next?? :p


BTW, have you noticed how the thread views count has jumped in the short space of time since you posted these last pics?!! :eek: Keep em coming, the viewers are out there lurking & watching! :thumb:
