      Talked to 4EverKustoms earlier in the winter, and they'll be refinishing the Twists. Still up in the air with what I want to do, but it's down to only 2-3 options.

      i've abandoned the want for air suspension.

      waiting on the wheels, as 4EverKustoms is still swamped with work. made a final decision on the finish though, which is good. hopefully they'll be done by June 1 at the latest.

      eyeing up mild/BT upgrade possibilities, but if it happens, it will be de-tuned to around the 300whp, 300ft. lbs. area, until i'm ready to upgrade the clutch and rods.
