Thanks. Decided we'd do the front bumper red as well. Got the color dialed in today. Hopefully have them shot tomorrow. Dang paying customers keep getting in the way of my stuff.Looking nice. Can't wait to see how she looks with the painted fascia. Let us know how the Shock Therapy springs work out.
You won our ranger we were giving away. I own Twin Peaks. I saw pictures of your FL350 there when my business partner FaceTimed me. That’s cool that you won! Haha. Small world.Don't know how much build there will really be but wanted to document the mods as I go. I'm new to SXS's in general so it'll be a learning experience for sure. I'm not new to fab work or customization. Been in the collision industry for 40 years. Have a pretty well equipped home shop for tinkering.
I tole the story in the intro thread but guess it's worth telling here as well. I have a restomod '85 FL350R that I just finished. I decided that I'd take it to a local off road show last week on 9/11/19. The promoters of the show have been selling raffle tickets for a '19 Polaris Ranger XP1000 all year. This was the final show. The raffle was a benefit for the Sheep Dog Impact Assistance group. A very worthy cause indeed so I figured I'd donate $20 for 5 tickets. I ended up winning the Ranger. lol...
The next day I paid the sales tax and promptly took it to my local Honda dealer and traded it in on a red X. my gosh I love the thing! The dealer had already installed color matched 14" Raceline Krank beadlocks and 32x10 Roxxzilla's. I also loved the wheel and tire combo. The dealer has a local shop build tail gates, extenders etc... for them and it also had one of their tail gates.
Current mod list:
Raceline Krank 14" beadlocks
Custom tail gate
Hondaline center console bag
Hondaline rear cargo bag
Simpson D3 5 point padded harnesses

The forum apparently doesn't like BB code so all the photos are thumb nails. Just click the pic for the full size pic.

One of my all time favorite pics. My FL350R and the new Talon...

I must admit that the wheel and tire combo really drew me to this X. I realize I'm in the major minority but I do not care for black wheels at all.

Looks goodWhilst I was researching Talon stuff I came across this little product. I know folks have bought a second firewall shield and turned it the other way to close up the open hole that Honda left for us but this seems like it would be a better solution. Just got it in the mail yesterday. The guy made it taller as well so more coverage on the bottom. Holes to mount it are already there on the Talon. Fit perfect and came with the required additional push pins. $15 plus $6 shipping on Ebay.

The red fascia and bumper along with the red wheels look really sharp. Keep going with the updates.Got the fascia and bumper shot today. Our paint system will not decode the Honda paint code. We took a camera shot with our color camera and it brought up a VW color code Y3U. Came out pretty well. I also got the Mud Buster extended fenders and rear guards installed as well. I debated the Mud Busters vs the Rokblokz. The Mud Busters are fine but the hardware seems kinda cheap.
