Odd...the dash decal does not match my dash configuration. Where's the amp gauge?

With the mods I did to BOH dash I will probably save the dash decal for RED or Hulk II. which ever it fits.

I went back to post #295 to find your dash and it is different from the decal.

I would think it would be different as I flipped the metal insert over that came off another dash so I wouldn't need to do a lot of wire mods. The original dash is in post 259. I still have the good one, I put the modded one on BOH. I assume the amp meter would need cut out.

Yep! spent 15 minuets digging around an ant pile and was soaked in sweat. 2 A/C's running in the shop at 9:30 pm and it's only 82* in here. Not too bad as they pull enough humidity out.

Not too bad this time! I remember taking BMP's tires to 3 different shops before those were mounted. I did several tricks with these and was done with all of them in an hour.

Step 1. leave them out in the sun while fixing the soap water and getting the tools and air hose and fittings ready.

Step 2. bring each tire into the A/C shop to be mounted, and remove the valve stem.

Step 3. soap (1 gallon + 1/4 cup blue Dawn) the tire lip and rim lip. This makes it slip right in. (Make it so the inside of the rim goes in 1st)

Step 4. Flip the tire over and soap the lip.

Step 5. Place a knee on the tire and using 2 pry bars carefully pry the tire on to the back side of the rim.

Step 6. Flip tire over and re-soap both sides.

Step 7. Using an air nozzle inflate the tire. (All 4 seated the 1st time)

Step 8. Install Valve stem and inflate to 20 psi to finish seating.

Step 9. Soap one more time around the rim to check for leaks.

 

Tomorrow I will reduce Air pressure to 12 psi and mount.

Phew, but a lot easier. The previous rim prep with removing previous ridges helped too.

BOH is officially off crutches. Anyone else put in a full day at work to come home and relax mounting tires? I couldn't leave it alone.

For comparison.

BOH Kenda are flatter even at 20 psi. I think looks good with the square chassis. 

Hulk II Carsile are rounded.

Old Girl Hi-Run slightly rounded.

I see a test drive this weekend to try the lights out!

Now that BOH can move, I put him to work right away. Now the challenge will be to fit 5 in the Man Cave, Luckly the Green one is small even with the deck on. I Took a group shot while I was making room. I'll bring them in this evening after I see how BOH LED's work.
