I still have some minor interior construction and the av bay to assemble and install, but I wanted to see this baby dressed out first. Looks like she's doin' 1000 mph in the workshop!

And put this sign up. I still haven't given up hope. I spoke to some motorcyclists out there today and they told me about two facebook pages that riders out there communicate on. I'll make a couple posts there.

Got my decal paper today. I haven't done water-transfer decals since I was a teen.

I really wanted the clean look and convenience of a switch on the exterior of the rocket. Thanks to M Dive and everyone else who got me straight on wiring this switch properly. The soldering iron showed up from Amazon and within the hour I put it to work on the battery lead extensions and the switch connections. I have never soldered before. Took me 10 minutes.

UPDATE: rearranged things on the sled to give the switch clearance. Also routed the wires behind the sled. The are getting tension relief at both ends now.
