Just got the frame back from the powdercoater. They burned off the old powder and blasted the frame to get it ready for welding. Now that the canvas is clean, I am going to drive it out to Spartan Frameworks to get the hardtail put on. This is one of George's first sporties and I am honored to be one of his guinea pigs.
After cleaning up both side covers, I got them bolted on and they looked better than I imagined. This mod was pretty easy, just time consuming. I'll probably continue to sand them down until they're 100% smooth. Damn OCD!
