LOL my dog jumped a foot in the air when that played.


My Grandson came running to see where the sound came from. :D

If you speed it up a bit, and put an empty beer crate, upside down over your laptop, it
sounds like it's saying, "Eeeeelf.......Eeeeelf.......Eeeeelf" :thumbs: :thumbs:

I like it.

I don't see how putting a beer crate on my lap will make it sound any different.

Got this tank mounted this afternoon. I spent a fair bit of time, making up the
bracket, and brazing the fittings on the tank.

Now, I'm on to fitting the battery, and regulator/solenoid in.
Any ideas, on how to mount that battery tray? And where to
mount the regulator?

Will, I like option one looks wise, but how about the vibration? Might be better mounted to the dash.

Kinda tight for doing the wiring, if it's mounted on the dash.
If I could only get rid of that dip stick, and shift the battery forward.

Do I really need a dipstick?

Maybe mount the regulator on the back of the grill, between the headlight holes?

I'm going to have to gusset the battery tray, back up to the dash. Maybe, if I shift the tray, to the right, there's
enough room to mount the reg onto that gusset.

I'm not sure yet. I'm using Google translator, to read the manual. It screws up sometimes.
It says something about "magical Elf liquid".
Must be for those highspeed runs.

Loving following this. Getting everything as close to original can be a challenge in itself.
