Thanks guys. I got around to doing some more stuff to it today.
I repainted the front spokes black, painted the rear rim black with red spokes, and painted the chainguard flat black with a seafoam two tone.
I also grinded down the spring bolt and lowered the front more and repositioned the front fender so its closer to the ground in the back (too low maybe). I'll have to take some more pics soon.:thumbsup:

Yeah I thought it was weird so i painted the chainguard two tone.
looking for a straight spoked rear wheel too cause the mismatched wheels kinda looks lame.

its just one of those things I mess with in my spare time so I am gonna try a bunch of different Rat and hot rod style shit until I get it how I like it.

I'll post some pics again when I can borrow a camera. :thumbsup:

Not the most detailed pics of the bike but I think you can see the rear wheel and chainguard have been repainted.

I <3 my y8 and I <3 your sol...I could waste 5 post a day explaining how bad ass your situation is.

2010-11-13, 12:24 PM
thanks man. is that your ek with the BYS bumper in your avatar?:cheers:

I like my B7 but its getting old. 246,400 miles and the rings are going out. I like my car but it leaks really bad. my seat is full of water from the rain the other day. I will have to post more stuff about my car on here I recovered the headliner and speaker covers the other day and made a home depot lip. I'm getting an ITR rear sway bar today too. Its got a long way to go but it has come so far already. I have so many parts stockpiled at my house for it too. I just need the time and money.

Ya thats my car. I know how you feel. I have had a header waiting to replace my cracked ass manifold sitting on my couch for like a month and a half because my car sits to low so I will have to put it on a lift to replace it.

damn that sucks. I got an ITR rear swabar the other day:mrgreen:
