So, last finishing touches on Roxanne.
I decided to leave suspension ride height as is for now. It could probably benefit from another 1/2-1" front and rear, but it is not totally off.
Anyway, this evening I mounted rear view mirror, harness, fire exstinguisher. Colin and I bled brakes, clutch, replaced old, old, old fuel filter.
We got it on the ground and I drove it around the block in order to have the drive train settle into a natural position prior to torqueing the pinch bolt. I came in and JJ (in town on visit) helped getting the front on ramps so that I could torque the pinch bolt with the suspension naturally loaded. After that another test drive: the driveshaft is beautiful - WENCO did a very good job!
So, what's left before Saturday? Tech tomorrow, Thursday, and then Colin and I will align it on Friday. That's it.
After this weekend and before the Oct WSR event I have a whole new set of stuff in mind...
Sorry, no pics today - I will take and post some tomorrow.
