    Looking good Paul. No shortage of Man crap in that place. Buggy, Motorcycle, Truck, Cabover Camper and an airplane project. Except the motorcycle, I have been browsing the internet for the truck, Cabover, and Razor myself. I had a motorcycle but I was going to get killed on our California highways. I split traffic far too long here and figured before my luck ran out I sold it. Guess I now know I need to make a stop in Cave Creek when I fly in to Scottsdale to visit my best friend. Need to see that Green in person!. Have fun with the build.

    Hey Eddie,

    Yes that lane splitting will get you. If you're interested in knowing about the Four Wheel Camper, PM me. They are great campers. Stop by anytime!

    Funny, I was never a fan of green til I saw the s7 speedster that Kyle Franklin flew. And your powdercoat looks like the same green. It's beautiful.

    Yes, and when you decide to do a color like this, you have real second thoughts, doubts, but... I have a vision. We'll see how it works out! Thanks.

    When I drive in the LA area, I was shocked at all the motorcycles splitting lanes. I was even more shocked that this was legal out there. Certainly seems a good way to shorten your life expectancy.

    I do like the green powdercoat, but I'd consider painting the tubes a dark color where they will reflect off the interior of the glass.

    Holy cow I'm jealous of your build space. I think my paint would have turned out better if I'd had the space to construct a proper paint booth.
