Curt from Black River Body and Custom put a new sliding window in. We found a rust hole that we temporarily patched. We'll weld in new metal when we replace the passenger side rockers and cab corner.

We decided to make the passenger side look a little nicer for now. Still wavy, but better. I ran out of time. I bought a Hutchins in line sander after this. We'll have to try it out later and make this better. I finally got my nice air compressor home, so waiting for air will be a thing of the past.

Maybe Brooke has more pictures of the window install and posts them.

Looking good. Inline sander will help a lot, much easier to use, especially when trying to make a panel flat.

On a side note, is that a Honda 250SX I spy in the previous post?

I wish it was a 250SX or 250R ! It's a 110, an '85 IIRC.

Still cool. I have a '85 250ES Big Red and a '83 200S. They are some good machines.

My inlaws had a Big Red with reverse and shaft drive and a 200S. That Big Red got used hard, pulling wagons on the farm. It just kept going and going!

We finally put some new BD springs in the front in August 2016. Whatever was in it was terribly harsh. The new springs have plastic slides on all the leaves.

So something must have changed on my camera. I resized the pictures and they're still to big. Not sure how to fix it so I can post them.  >:(

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Well Brooke has been driving this and has bought a car now. We're going to try to get back to working on Bedazzled again. Not much has changed. We had got a reman trans from GM, I always felt it shifted soft. I was told it was fine. Also the TBI unit was changed because the original was worn at the throttle shaft. We sent the original TBI to RV Morse to be rebuilt and bored. When I compared it to the TBI unit we had been using there was close to a 1/2" difference in the location of the TV cable. It shifts much firmer now!
