stephen, just to let you know, i was 12 washers short on my shackle flip....i thought maybe i wasnt supposed to put them on both sides, but the directions say "place a washer on each side of the connection"..maybe i misread it, but its no big deal....just wanted to drop you a line..... i did the WHOLE thing by myself...it took the whole weekend, the hardest part was putting that gas tank back up since it had about 10 gallons of fuel in it!! talk about a monkey [censored] a foot ball!!! this is definitily(sp?) a two man task............too bad my buddies all had "stuff to do" AIRBORNE!!
