Tank is in!

Tank spacer and test fit.
you would NOT want to use glue or epoxy to hold these together. These straps are made to hold your tank in position if the ski goes upside down. If those straps get contaminated with oil or...

Thanks again Woody. The SUV straps were too long, and I tried some GPR straps, and they were too short. This will make the tank install nice...

Backing plates attached to the stringers, with epoxy, and rivets. Expanding foam in place, and drying. Don't want to fiberglass over that stuff while still expanding.

It wasn't Joe. He just has a guilty conscience. :)
Californians in general are scared by shipping.

Thanks John. Just getting someone to ship anything from California seems to be an issue, so I don't think there is anything you can do. About ready to re-assemble. Made some new mount reinforcement...
Those were on sale for $40 shipped from SBT on a half-price sale. They are pretty slippery. Not sure I'll keep them. They do seem durable.

He's still running strong. 95mph plus, at 5000ft PLUS altitudes. Can't wait to see it at this years ride.
Powdercoated gutted SD waterbox.
Diamond cut mats, with side lifter wedges....

Once again, thanks to all that have contributed, or even offered.
Bradley came out to AZ, delivered a box of missing goodies, and helped me pull the engine out of the SUV. Man that is a tight...
LOL. Yeah, not much posting these days. Between work, and too many hobbies, I'm always out of time, energy, and money. The next two months will be critical, for both Bill's SUV, and the Blackbird....

He's wanting a silver one. Good luck with the red or silver one.

No, you can't. They will take your order for the color of your choice (per model) and it will STILL come to you black.

Last of a kind, still in one piece... amazing.

No cure... sorry. I've tried. :)

This was our late Moderator Oside Bill's baby. He loved the GP, the spent lots of time putting it together. His son Zak is selling it on Craigslist....
Sort of like asking what is the perfect woman, or car, or country...
Innovation: All of the brands do good work. Amazing what Kawi knew with pump tunnels, or Yami with hulls back 15 years or so....
Changes coming... some pics from earlier work.
I have a converted MSX tank, and straps, but the S-hook may still work. Will call the junk yard and see if they have any of the right kind first.

We couldn't find them earlier. Zak (his son) found them and they arrived at my house last fri.
