Check out the thread here.

 

I could not put that Red valve on Alice. So with a little effort, it is now Orange!

I will wait until tomorrow morning to start putting her all back together. Gotta let the paint cure some! I miss having her to ride around on!

Build it, break it, build it better. 

 

I love the attack turtles sign.

Got out early before the heat arrives (think it's already here). Got the 3-point bolted back to the box.

Put the valve back together.

And the box is installed.

The 3 gold headed bolts are what holds the box to the frame. 3 per side. The one furthest left is the one I added. Thought going through the 3-point mount might hold things better.

Now I'm ready to swap the hoses to the new valve and mount it. Then everything else goes back on. Alice may be running before lunch!

I decided to put the fender and seat up there to see how close the valve was going to be. Good thing! The valve is too high and too far out. Need to move it 1/2" each way. That will put the lines real close to the fender, but I already figured out how I can move them outboard 1/2" real easily. Nothing major, just a slight delay.

Got the valve hooked up and working! Bushings for the fenders are painted and waiting for those to dry. I can finish putting her together tomorrow! I'm ready for that!

Looks good - just in time for a weekend tour of the neighbourhood with the canopy on.  A suggestion for the canopy would be to make the cover in 3 or 4 pieces and leave them so the overlap could breathe at the join.  May use a bit more material but might prevent it from acting like a sail - just a thought.

That would be beyond my capabilities. One piece will be a challenge for me to get attached.

Shouldn't take too long to get everything back in place this morning. My hand is doing great, not hurting much and swelling is slowly going down. Hardest thing to put back on will be the tires @ 160 lbs each. But I have a plan for those.

She's all back together! WooHoo! Fender shims worked out great. Had Steve help with the back tires. I'll put the fork lift on later and see in the lifting is any better.

I recognize the sheet metal on the dash tower but what is the rear end?
