    The Wheelie Award For Excellence in T-Dubbery

    Everyone deserves a little recognition at times. How about here as a place to point out some of the good things our members do to help each other out or just make the world a better place?
    I'll start out small and simple:
    Today I nominate Oneighty for a Wheelie for refusing to accept more than $3.00 for a pair of reflectors he spent $2.56 to mail to me. Thanks Jonathan!
    I bet you folks can come up with other worthy candidates like boznaras's Scott Firefighter Stair Climb benefit...Good Man Walter!
    What say ye?

    Today's nominee is SkiPro who took pity upon me for searching around on snowy single tracks looking for a missing faux air scoop for my XT225 gas tank. So he sent me an entire Serow gas tank with matching scoops. Thanks Gerry! What a guy! What a forum full of helpful folks!
    Tank had it's cap pried off at one point so is too damaged to use as is, Anyone want to weld the top of their tank onto this one making a 3 gallon custom tank?
    Time for me to pay it forward just a little bit....gonna scrape the snow off my truck, put her in four wheel drive and deliver some turn signals to the post office to send to a deserving member.

    Admiral gets the tank if he is not scared away by buggered up cap area.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I have a hammer and can fix this! Thanks Fred!

    Somehow I thought Admiral would be able to hammer out a solution.
    This will give the lame duck something to pound on this winter while shoulder heals...so off to post office now with SkiPro's recycled tank in his recycled box to mail to Idaho ( pronounced I-don-know).
    Thanks again SkiPro, your generosity is the gift that keeps on giving.

    I knew if that tank and it's parts got into your hands, Fred, you'd find them a home. Good to hear Admiral is gonna have a project this winter. Ha!

    Scoops are treasure Ski Pro 3, thank you very much.
    Now I have a project.
    How do I remove decals and adhesive leaving a surface suitable for priming and paint? Heat and peel? WD-40? Acetone? Goof-off? Some of those decals can be tenacious and leave a gummy residue. However all my TW decals came off quite easily.
