Anyone know of a cure for " The while I'm There " BUG ?

Brakes and Shocks...........that's what I said. :doh:

Then started looking at the Clark's website...........

Well, guess I'll Upgrade to the Dual M/C (and New Lines of course)

New Brake Lines, guess I'll add the Gas Line ( it's right here on the page )

Humm, might as well buy those rear coil springs.

A couple of lifters, ticking. Add a set of those.

Might as well Do the Blower bearing.

Lets see, the insulation kit would Look Good.............

Carpet has a Loooong Cut, might as well.

Those Floor mats would match the new carpet..........

At Least the Wife got the checkbook out of my hand............ :angry:

Now, sit and wait for the UPS Guy. Guess My Spring is Planned........................
Have a Great Day,

Bill

Latest Find, (Craig's List)

I Think I've found the solution to the "Time or Money" Problem.......... :doh:

If I find it, and can swing it at the time, I Buy It. I'll worry about installing it when the Lean times roll BACK around.

Can anyone confirm that the Hub extension should be the same color as the column ?
Have a Great Day,

Left Front Done. New drums standing by.

Same for the Left Rear.
