Just picked up the rocker panel extensions this morning. Between those, and the high wing, this thing is going to look sinister.

Hitch a ride??? As in hitchhike? Used to love doing that, probably a few thousand of miles under my belt. Unfortunately you can't go more 10 miles these days without a cop picking you up and running a complete background check. It'd take him a week to get to Bowling Green at that rate... That's assuming they don't invent a charge to kidnap him off the streets because then nothing says he'll ever get there.

I would touch that black paint as little as possible when cleaning...foam gun, high quality foam wash, high quality microfiber towels, leaf blower, etc...
