Got a heat gun, but I will put Alice out to gather all the heat she can before putting on the decals.

Been working during the week. I hope the sun comes out today so I can get her out and put the decals on. I will wait to install the hourmeter until the Amp gauge arrives. Be easier to wire it in then.

Got the Amp gauges yesterday! Hopefully I can install the gauges this weekend. I edited post 91 for the link to the Amp gauges as these folks came through and they are cheaper there.

That's the same place where I bought the Amp gauge for my AC710.  The gauge seems to be off good quality.  The retaining bracket is made of plastic but seemed to be made well.  Time will tell.

It has the original gauge. I think it has the metal bracket. If so, I may use it!

Well, the new Amp gauge and Hour meter are in! And I put the first 1/10 hour on the meter to make sure it worked! But all the pics had a flash reflection on the meter!

Those head lights draw a bunch of amps, folks! Even at full throttle, the gauge goes over to the minus side when I turn them on. Guess I need to find some different ones. I really want some about 3" dia. These are 4". I'll do some searching for LEDs.

Yep, looks like your only option Kenny.  I was worried having 2 halogen headlights and a halogen work light on Hogzilla, but that little alternator isn't phased by them.  I'd rather have LED, but keeping what I have to save some $.  I already had all 3 lights in hand when I started the project.
