Yes, makes it so much easier when parts are laid out to see if anything is missing. Just received the exhaust in the mail yesterday. The last big purchase is the fenders.

JD, I've been using Billmark plating in Texas. Prices are pretty good and the quality it's great.

I finally got the engine together last night thanks to Dave Madigan and his adjustable Let's. Also got the front wheel complete and re day to install, pics to follow.

We're getting closer now, also received my paint from Don Hutchinson so got get that done too, hoping to have this complete to make the trip with men to the OVBSAOC rally in August.

Finally got the engine installed in the frame along with mounting the rear fender and tail light. Slowly coming along. Hoping to have the paint work completed this week as well.

Finally finished the paint work! Turned out really great and the Spring Gold looks fantastic. Totally different comparing the new shiny paint to the original sun faded Spring
Gold paint on my 70' TR6R.

Cant wait to get these mounted.

Thanks, I haven't even wet sanded/ buffed the clear but I think I will leave it as is. There is basically no orange peel, I really do love how the Dupont Chroma system paint lays out.

Great job on the paint. I just finished painting mine this morning. I used paint from Don Hutchinson. Used Shopline clear coat. I like the way both lay out. I will sand and polish. I found a guy who does hand striping so he will add the gold stripe. Would like to see pics of the Tiger 650 decal placement if you don't mind. I am thinking mylar transfer.
