no idea at the moment as Russell reeled off few options.
Your right with the scrubbing issues, hopefully they will tuck nice and if we set up the droop nice they wont move bugger all, handle like its on rails too.
Doubt ill get them done in time for power cruise to see how they handle on track but theres the Hampton Down friday nights ill try it out then.
Get them in so they can be certed at same time as the engine etc though.

thanks Richard.
They are all Super Pro, which we sell at work (STOCKS)
the front Z bar bush was worst to do, took a bit of thinking of how to get it out and new one in as we couldnt use the press. Dont think any one ever does them, not sure what difference it will make.

As for tittie calender, if your all good boys, Santa might post one out to you.
Otherwise $10 to become a member on here and you get to see a lot of flesh in members section....not man flesh!!

Now that's how you get things done

Looking good Kelvin, so much for just a daily driver with no modifications

missus is fine with it, is all for it, as long as it doesnt end up as a project like calais

I wish I'd pushed the point more about the p/s rack needed for that k-frame. Sorry bro. If you end up replacing your p/s rack, maybe could swap that frame out then. I'll come up to help for that one. Hopefully the vk rack will be ok.
Im finishing earlier tomorrow so I'll get that air box sent up over night couirer. Work has gone from quiet to full on.

all good man, got there in the end, luckly danny had a spare VK K Frame there and we just swapped arms over onto it.
Thanks heaps for sending up air box, guna top off the look i wanted from start.
Exhaust is going to be very tight fit past the rack, not sure what the difference of later model rack, looked like it would clash with clutch cable if it was anywhere else.
Anyway, left it with DK Customs to finish off the wiring, exhaust, diff swap, gear box mount. Ill add pics of progress anyway.
Doubt many people on here have done the transplant them selves but its not an easy swap, alot to do, Danny (and I) done a huge job in such short time and i am forever in his dept for doing what hes done.
Big ups to ya Danny

thanks man, few more plans with her yet to make her better.
It is the 'star wars' dash haha. I have'nt seen one in years either(working anyway) couple mates had VK Calais' back in the day and i always loved the look. Something different too. Works out well with the gear box as its pick up is wires not cable, wire it straight into gear drive and shes away.
