Thanks for all the kind words guys!! theres some other ideas to try!!It does indeed look better in shortened form. I'd think the big ol' honkin' engine and zoomies should go bye-bye, too...would make it a mite hard to get in and see out of! Either that, or extend the front-end and move the engine forward. This casting presents some good opportunities for an inventive and skilled customizer (the former could describe me, but the latter definitely could not).
