    I usually email myself the photos from phone to laptop and upload directly from there. The slow part is if you compress the photos to send more than about 3 at a time they get all fuzzy. Takes some time but worth it. Nice build!

    Planning on getting it together to ride this winter and work out any bugs it may have then in the spring disassemble everything and take everything to get powdercoated to the local guy

    It looks like it is coming together nicely, Did you have the stretch the hood out? other then the top?  I did a build a few years ago using a 96 Polaris and morphing a 78 TX hood and styling on it, I had to do a ton of glass work, yours looks like it fits nice with little glass work, have you decided on decals?

    I ended up cutting the top made a cowl style scoop for it up to clear the plugs but I think I could have got away with with two teardrop style rivit on caps , other then the elbow that comes off from the back of the heads and the plugs a stock hood would fit pretty good would need trimming down in the scoop in a stock hood, I used the stock tx pan and it was still flexible enough to fit to the 1/4 2 aluminum bumpers I made to the contour of the starfire hood, then I made a couple hood guides
