I'm official!
Written by pwhite422000 on 6/8/2010 at 01:48 pm

I followed the advice of others and put washers on the bottom of the shelter
(the fake tank). I used Gorilla Glue to hold 8 large washers in place. It also
has a strap that secures it. I was able to go through the gas tank cover with
that. I haven't had a chance to try it as I am waiting for an air filter to
arrive later this week. I may follow the directions supplied by another member
to modify a car filter tonight so I can put everything back together.

That thing is smoooth!) Luckily, the officer didn't ask for registration (I had
insured it and already TRIED to get it registered) so I lucked out there.

waiting for his next update.)
