Just added 87 photos of my Ape build to the flicker account. Pretty much ready to start fixing the metal, replace floorboards and lots of fun.

I'd like to help out too. I've got a lot of that sort of work to do on my GS. Lemme know when you're working on it. I'll bring over a cowl or two and we'll work on stuff.
