Back in May we were in the garage kicking it when Lowla says does my butt look big. It turns out we had driven through Rough and Ready to get to Grass Valley one day and she must of saw the TURBO hanging out the back of Speedbuggy. I explained to her she is a BUG she has to have proper sheet metal for cooling purposes. So we came up with a compromise.

A removable rear valance. We have driven her less than 1000 miles and puller the motor 5-6 times. You have to remove dual carbs but the rest is a snap. This is what she looks like with out the rear valance. [img][/img]You have to drill out around 24 spot welds on each side but it is worth it. I had a new rear valance just in case it got messed up.

It drives Lowla when your equipment is hanging out. She is jealous.

Depending on the rain we are going to try and get the turbo situated in the 914 tomorrow.
