Made some eccentric widgets so I could adjust the angle of the Dart Marlin screen. Flattened out the original tabs on the brackets and drilled a hole to attach the adjusters.

Rust free fenders, not a bad thing, probably lighter too. Hope they don't make the frame out of plastic. 😜
But the fenders here in salty environment of the Keys and for the northern guys on salted winter roads will probably maintain there good looks longer.
Happy Trails

Told him to throw me $400 for parts and my trouble, and we'll call it even. I think that was reasonable and fair. Attachment 346705

It's good the youngster owned up to it. Seems rare with today's youth. But you helped him by working it out without a stain on his insurance and driving record. Well done by all. That's folks working together.
Happy Trails

Got my arrow 2-2 installed this morning, relatively smooth process. Already preferring the sound but it's going to stay parked for a few days. Service and remap Wednesday
