Superglue and baking g soda make a great panel repair solution Hud.

Rode mine to work, our forecast says we could see 60 this afternoon. Boxed up the stiffy kit I had for sale and have it ready for UPS to pick up this afternoon to go to its new owner in TX.

... Turns out the main hole is in the gas bowl drain nut. Hoover thought that shit up must live in a single wide with the tars still on it down the road from Wheatness. Cuz the hole was plugged solid with dinosore boogers.
I think I know this guy. Hes got lawnmowers and scooters for sale in his front yard next to the tractor. He's the smart guy in the neighborhood who can make a livin without selling meth or confederate flags...
Isn't he the guy with working TV stacked on top of the broken TV?

Checked on the DIY mirror stay repair from Monday night. Used a superglue gel from Loctite and three clamps with the mirror still attached. It's hardened for 48 hours and is as solid as new. Got wiring ready to pull for installation of Fuzeblock (Thanks, BigJohn, it's finally getting installed!), Glenda aux lights, and "ignition-on" signal from glove box cigarette lighter.

Oh yeah, cigarette lighter has already been gutted and replaced with 2-socket USB port. It's an ugly thing, but it will be hidden in the glove box and the ohmmeter says it will work.

Where are you mounting the fuze block? If under the seat, there is an easier trigger source with the license plate light circuit.

The blue wire/white stripe is the license plate light wire.

Yea, wish I'd known this ages ago. The headlight is a terrible idea for a trigger source. Unless of course you never use the high beams

Morning started off with severe thunderstorms. Then they moved out and it was 70F and sunny. Go for a ride? Don't mind if I do! Last week I took Jakob out on big silver, today it was little blue's turn. Good afternoon ride.

For my fuzeblock mounted under the rear seat i tapped the lic. Plate light. The wire to tap is 4" from the unit, makes it easy.
