    truggied and all, haha. I always admired Pete's rig, and did see it in person, it was as cool person(even just sitting in his driveway). There was a time I strived to build mine to be pretty much the samething. Wish I had kept that goal with my K5s as well. Oh well the past is the past and we have what we have now.

    Question, in the first fender pic it looks like you have no inner fenders. Did you have any problems with debris in the engine compartment? I know on a muddy day I'm scrapeing 1/2" of garbage off my inner fender on my daily driver and that's just from driving the cemetery roads. Do you just waterproof the engine compartment and hose it out?
