Bits And Pieces... Right After Purchase

IMG 0488

Lord knows... I've got plans for Blk-Bry.... some involved... some, not so much.... She came to us with no rear bumper.... (and son thought it was really cool as is).... but.... I figured my 14 yo daughter would eventually back into "something".... sooner or later.... made a few inquiries with the local triumph group.... and found a really great condition bumper - with plastic overriders.... for $200.....

Time to fix it, once and for all.... Rear: After going through the archives extensively, I decided to go with the Corvette air shocks recommended by so many.... Found them at a local FLAPs, in stock, for around $70..... Brought them to the shop where I removed the upper bushing to replace with the factory bushing. L...
