Well, moved it about 20 yards away next to some other tree - they were tricky about it too - that tree looked just like "the tree" I had origionally parked next to. After that I always left the BO marker lights on so that trickster couldn't get me again! lol
Ooops! But hey, it happens to the best of us.

I had a customer several years ago who had a Suzuki ATV we just did some major repairs on for him, including new plastic, seat cover, tires and other stuff. It was a larger utility ATV if I remember correctly.

Anyway, he rode quite a lot, and also drank a lot too, and got out on the trail and stopped in the woods and walked a distance away to answer nature's call. Whether he was too drunk to remember he was riding, or he lost his way, isn't clear, but he couldn't find his ATV and hiked back out and home.

The next morning he woke up and couldn't find his ATV or remember any of the details. The bike was lost for good.

I bet some kid had the find of a lifetime out there in the woods in the following days......

The black out lights in the regular turn signal and tail light housings just do the blackout turn signals and running lights...they dont do the stop lights. The only black out stop light is in the seperate housing to the passenger side.

That is the brake lamp. It should only come on when you have the BO lamp system activated and apply the brakes.

Oops, I must have been at the bottom of the page and not realized that we had already gone on the another page. Grrr...

I do love my bead blaster too. No other way to paint in my opinion. Just wish the whole truck would fit in it.....

The Krylon does spray well, and looks right. Rust-Oleum makes the same color, but the spray consistency isn't as good. It works in a pinch. I just normally spray everything with a gun, but time and funds have dictated rattle can in this instance. All the $$$ are going to the mechanical end for now and later, I will spring for the OD by the gallon.
