Stage 1 complete
So I'm off to the garage shortly to empty my pockets in payment for the frame repair I just had done..... Standby for the $$$

I may now be able to use back roads and minor trails without the frame snapping in half.....
Next job, skid pan nutserts and lift/maybe SYE & CV.....


It's only taken 9 months!! Should be done by 2125.....

ooooh yeah.... Luckily the guy at the shop has managed to cut out the bad parts and put in new sections, says the rest isn't too bad. I will be getting some Eastwood internal frame coating this weekend......

$565 :gulp:

7.75 hours labor and a replacement rear brake line.

$58/hr labor rate.

Not bad I suppose, saved me a lot of money having this done in the long run....

That's not bad at all, considering that at the body shop i worked at back in ct we charged $85 port hour
