    finally got my parts washer wired and plumbed, wired in a pressure switch too cause my flow through brush has a on/off botton so i dont burn my pump up. even got the axle in it ready to be cleaned, just need solvent and thats it, i can start clean'in her up.

    painted my frame too, used good primer and hammertone top coat. not great pic of frame, also the titanium spacer i made to relocate the lower fender mount since i cut off the factory mount when i trimed the fenders.

    Looking really good. Gotta love the hammer paint. Stuff is pretty durable and goes on easy!

    even if you have a run in the paint it hides it well. wish it dried faster though. its just sharp look'in paint.

    thanks guys for the props on the parts washer. i put it on here right after powder coat, then it sat for a couple of months so i could collect some more money to finish the wireing and plumbing. i might even build a light bar out of aluminum square tube to hang a 8 ft. floresent light to see good.

    here are a few more, but not real good ones though. the black primer i used to paint the edge after i trimed every thing makes it kinda hard to see the lip edge. the third pic shows the fender after it was cut, you have that big gap between the outer skin and inner fender structure. the next pic is of the fender after i welded in a strip of .062 steel sheet, shapped to fit and fill the gap. that stiffened up that part of the fender alot. every where i trimed im going to reweld a strip back in to fill the gap created to stiffen it up.
