Maybey,but I got rid of the dodge a few months ago.I've been riding the v-rod to work.But I stop at poor boys all the time.Do you ever come to the cruse at auto zone in Excelsior springs?(It's on the first sat of every month.)I was still living next door to the Elms when those pix were taken.

I respect your ambition to see this project through.

Hey...I have an idea for you.

Check out the side view mirrors that came on the late 95-99 model Buick Riviera, and Aurora. The have a freaky aero looking high pedestal and flow back into a torpedo looking housing for the glass. I don't recall ever seeing one of those on a Vette...but I think it would be the perfect mod for your car with all the aero body work you are doing.

I like that v-rod...i am thinking about getting one..
If you do get one, you wont regret it!Of all the bikes that I have had,( from KZ's,rice rockets,and big'ol briggs and strattons to gold wings) This is hands down my favorite one so far.I have added a power commander III USB,opened the exhaust and a few other things.It's kinda cool to have a harley that redlines at @10.000rpm and has 120hp stock.All of that aside it just a great ridin bike!:thumbsup:

I have it lined up and will take pix of the head lamps as I go too!I was gonna build my own buckets for them out of glass,but I have a few things to try on them to keep the look.I might just modify the donners.I'm waiting on them to get here first and see how close they are.(They will need some moddin.)
