And she's together . Adjusted throttle linkage , Mounted the chamber , mounted the 5T side pieces back on . Checked the fitting of the cage and attached it and the Virus body . Need to drill the mounting holes for the Roof panel yet . Next is to do some drawings for paint design on the body panels. AND CLEAN OFF THE KITCHEN TABLE . :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

So looking for opinions . I'm thinking about creating a stencil of the Dakar dude and painting it on each side of the buggy . The buggy is going to be Black & Neon Green the DAKAR DUDE will be painted in black . Yes/No with or without the word Dakar ? Kind of an example of what I would be doing and where I plan on putting it .

Yeah let's hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew . I've never used an airbrush before. I've got some ideas rattling around in my head how I'd like it to come out . Hopefully I will be able to execute them .

Figure this weekend we are suppose to get about a foot of snow :eek: so I'll clean up the kitchen table and turn it into my painting studio so that I can learn and practice .:LOL:

So I had ordered a 5B to 5T conversion kit from King motors About a week and a half ago and recieved it last week . Yesterday I did the install . Not to bad. This morning I ordered the Grafil G-Virus body . That should be here in about 2 weeks . Next week I'll order the Chase cage and the other odds and ends I'll need and I may order the OBR v2 34cc reed case engine. 9.4 hp is so tempting
been thinking of pulling trigger on same motor
