    Well the ship has landed and the truck pulled up today. (About a week sooner than I dared hope!)

    Here's a few shots. Will switch out chrome mirror caps to black, and add S stripes front and back, and will most likely pick it up Monday.

    Was going to go with a stubby antenna right off the bat, but I think I'll keep the big one to cart more donuts:cornut:

    Hope these pics work...

    Very nice. I knew Crashton would be proud of you for keeping the longer doughnut holder. You do know that at some point he WILL load it up for you. :Thumbsup:

    Stubby = what, one, maybe 2 donuts? Big one = "maybe" the whole dozen? No brainer. :eek:ut: :D

    Yeah, if there is def a difference in reception, then I'm sticking. I hate radio fades.

    Thanks. C'monnnnnn Monday.

    Only problem is Crashton puts the doughnuts on and then CHKMINI eats them for you. :lol:

    I recently put an Outmotoring stubby on my wifes R60 and there is no change in reception. Make sure you bottomed out the mounting stud.

    In this case you are correct, but normally I don't like to bottom out. :D

    Jason donut holes make a fine muffler packing. Body-men have used them for years as rust hole stuffing.

    Donuts do indeed enhance radio reception. :Thumbsup:

    They do if you like the radio changing stations all the time on its own to pick up the current Dunkin Doughnut of Tim Horton commercials. :D

    UPDATE

    Here's a couple of quick phone pics. Was nice and detailed inside, but that didn't last long. Will try to get out for a few better pics later if the weather improves, but looks like rain off and on ALL day.

    All went very smoothly. Worth the wait for the stripes, imho.

    Loved the drive home!!!!

    More soon...

    Thanks very much!!!

    Here's my favorite little interior feature. The checkered trim strip.

    Ok, now I'll be in the garage playing with the owners manual, and buttons, and well, you know.... Oh, and now I hear I may have to make a run to the store....! :Thumbsup: :cornut: :ihih:
