Tail gate patch

DJ: The roof paint looks great. [cl
I am willing to give the patch another go and make it taller if that helps reduce your stress level.

The photos and description make it look easy. How did that joggle where the repair section joins the panel work out?

Joe is the guy to get this project finished. I'm guessing by 4th of July. Given his work on the Gothic Bike it will be a gem when done.

Keep us posted Joe.

I wouldn't ignore the dripping fuel. When I first fired the 78 I managed to set it on fire. Given your frustrations you might just let it burn.:rolleyes:

Keep the fire extinguisher handy [cl!

Sounds like you are on the right track. It was a crap shoot with a used engine to begin with. The best you could have hoped for was to pull out a good runner with good compression, oil pressure,...

Paint vs Powder coat

Good discussion on the pros and cons of paint and powder.

Front axle position, maybe this photo will help

There is still some lens distortion but maybe this will illustrate the issue.

Front axle position
