If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

i've heard that you can make a DIY electric cooling fan by getting one out of a ford taurus. there is also a pvc snorkle, flush mounting headlights... there are more but the pizza just arrived.

Cheap Harley Davidson rear passenger footpegs, (mine were spares, but they're cheap on ebay) and $1.34 of Lowe's hardware. Now cruisin' w/ the doors off is even more cool and comfy.
