There are thousands of videos on home kits on YouTube to check out when you're bored.

I always like doing what I can myself. Not just the money savings, but the 'I did that myself' factor.

My dad got me a welder last x-mas, and I'm learning how to weld, notch tubing, and all sorts of other related stuff.

Sesame Street always taught me that learning was fun. :wasted:

Getting the front frame of his ruck ready for a Summer Quickie.

So dirty.
Image

Image

Pretty. And my garden in the backdrop makes me smile.

Holding up a front frame while taking a picture of it is harder than it sounds. lol

Looks good.

Don't feel bad. There's less than 20 guys keeping this ghost town of a forum alive. :meh:

Thanks guys!

On my ruck:

I also decided to install my Password ignition plate and do some wire clean up while I was in the battery box.

Image

Found a very handy place to put the connector for the battery tender. :)

Image

Image
That's the front brake cable (still front drum) where the speedometer cable use to route through. Hopefully when I put the battery box back on its not noticeable unless your looking for it. I'm going to install an in-line fuse on the + side of the charger adapter. Just in case it ever gets pinched or the insulation rubs and it happens to short out. I'd rather not catch my ruck on fire just because I added something so simple.


And I did just have my flasher relay dangling around by a loose zip tie. But now it's nicely mounted and secure.

And I love these LED headlights I got off Amazon, but the cords were short and I did have the amplifiers/ regulators / controllers ,whatever you want to call them, mounted outside the battery box.

(When I find a "before picture I'll add it here)

So now I'm combining the headlight cables into one cable. Then putting the connectors back on the other side to plug in to the amplifiers inside the battery box. :)

Image

Amps circled in red. Original headlight plugs in green.

Actually that makes me feel better. Because 4 of those 20 replied. And since I'm assuming that I'm one of the 20, that means that over 20% of the people here are interested in what I'm doing. :banger:

And so far I'm at a 100% approval rate of those interested. :mrgreen:
