Excellent write-up there John !!

I thought for SURE there was going to be a follow up topic called "Painting Your Shock Covers", but you put the chromies right back on !! :D

You know, I seriously thought about it, but that would mean I'd have to remove and replace the Tourist sidecar shock, which is a royal pain in the a$$ and not something I want to repeat soon!   :cry:

This job was to replace the two rear leaking shocks only.  Maybe one day when I'm feeling extra ambitious...   :o

I took the rig out last night to a Labor Day party and toted a buncha folks and younguns over and through a wooded and pasture area bouncing around pretty good.  First thing I checked was to see if they were leaking (yet).  So far so good. They will eventually leak, it's just a question of when...  :surprise:
