Awesome work. Where did you get those seats and what brand? I been looking for something comfortable looking that will accept my 5 points. Do they recline and slide back and forth?

thanks for the words, the seats i got from a place here in phoenix, they are corbeau baja ss, they do not recline, you can get sliders for them but they are another 90 bucks plus you have to have adapters for all there baja seats, your talking over 100 bucks more per seat.
i just use pins instead of bolts to mount them to the tabs, just pull both rear pins and the seat will tilt forward.

got my exhaust back from the coaters, still needs to be polished, but looks decent, im happy with it.





went to fire it up for the first time in over a year, damn thing cranked real slow, like a dead battery, pulled the plugs cranked for oil pressure, cranks great. i was thinking starter bushing. gonna pull the starter tomorrow and see if i can get it out without pulling the engine back out.

took the baja on the inaugural test drive, not too bad, but not too good either...
brakes went out, only 1 side of the cutting brake was working. throttle sticking, and my German 930s were clicking at 15 degrees. Evil or Very Mad
