    Update...

    Started grip taping the Hollywood deck tonight. ( Thanks Depog Revilo for the DIY thread: http://www.billetboard.com/showthrea...ip-Tape-a-Deck )

    ...

    Took around two hours or so. One of the bolts was seized so I had to work with the deck ON the frame unfortunately.

    Pro tip: If you're doing a hollywood deck, the stars in the middle are a pain to cut out... Also use duck tape on the big star at the bottom, and then place grip tape over it. (Made the process of cutting that area out so easy)

    Start:



    Still not finished, but it's getting there: More cutting and then I'll start doing the polishing.





    ...

    Ordered a TON of parts from DDM and ADA racing this morning as well.

    Photos once those arrive.

    Also getting a few parts redone in carbon fiber, waiting for kit/materials to arrive.

    Parts look like most will arrive this weekend, hopefully by Sat, so I can update more photos for you guys..

    In the mean time, posting an update so I have a place to log what I need to still pick up.

    Going to eventually get rid of the mad dog brakes and upgrade, currently these in my shopping cart.

    Might pull the trigger and grab them this weekend; not sure yet..

    lol...

    I think the Postman must have seen "ADA RACING" on the mailer and rocketed to this my house FAST.

    Two things came in early today. Rest of the parts come in tomorrow!

    New ADA Racing Black gas tank cover. They even shipped me a FREE light up pen.. This thing is BRIGHT, nearly blinded myself, it's awesome. Thank you ADA!



    FLY Racing Gloves. Took me forever to find these. 2012 model they stopped selling, had to look everywhere and got lucky enough to find one in my size.

    Yes they do; I oddly enough noticed that as well...

    Seems like they changed the tires a bit. I remember buying new ones and the quality was amazing, but the ones that came in today weren't really impressive.

    The blue line was dull not bright at all, but the tires seem new. The green and yellow lines were missing too, which had me worried for a second.

    2 more packages arrived today:



    Just installed the Skoped MTB adapter...

    They really did an excellent job making these, the quality is fantastic.



    USPS hasn't updated 7 packages with tracking updates so I have no idea when things will arrive. The other 8 or 10 or so I have a general idea of where they are at.

    Just ordered another $100+ in parts from DDM today.

    Once everything arrives the build will be complete.

    Well.. Still need to get the Goped registered and get street plate tags. (More on the legal loopholes later)

    Hmm will have to pick up a UNI filter the next order at DDM.

    Yup! Propole is mounted and holds great. Thanks again for sending that, really appreciate it man.

    Some of the bearings in the fork were due to be replaced, so I ended up ordering new bearings and DDM's HD steel cups as well.

    Looks like everything should arrive by Friday or next Monday and I'll be hopefully riding by then.

    Yes, but no idea what my username was, it's been at least 8 or more years.
