    I know what you mean about 2 at the same time is too much. Your motor mount designs look very good and strong.

    So now the halter`s are done in the back of the motor, for the front one`s I`m going to use a thinner sheet. These one`s are 4mm thick and in the front they are going to be 3mm. Hey Bullnerd, I can use are folding bench at work .

    I`m going to have to build a new airfilter the stock won`t fit in my frame, electric box has to be shortened. Will post pic`s later.

    Thank`s for the comment`s guys, nice to hear. So I got the front motor halter done but not mounted, `ve got to make a new gear shifter my old one won`t fit. So I`ll wait till I know how I`m going to do that .I made these from .158 sheet because they are so long.

    This is my shifter lever that I`m using to bring the shifter on the right hand side. Don`t care much for the shifter on the left side. The problem with this motor is that the shifter so high is , you can see this in the last pic. That`s going to be fun. Plan on doing this over Christmas vacation.

    Nice Work Mike67! Its looking good and you have really nice metal fabrication skills.

    I Like the Alters. How are you cutting them out and do you have a pic of the Brake you use to bend them.

    My friend has a Plasma XY axis table which I get most of my plates cut from. But I have to have him cut a Slots where the bend goes so I can bend it on my Vice.

    There is a homebuilt bender thread in Shop Talk that is an easy way to do it.
