Default Re: 560sec ece

I seem to have missed this post and updates altogether.

That panel looks fantastic.
The colour matching of that Frigate Blue is fantastic.
I did have great results as well.

A while ago I had a switch box (very nasty and complex ignition switch that controls everything including a gear lever lockout) issue with my 72 Shadow.
When traveling back to Sydney between Katoomba and Laura, it open circuited and the engine stopped, and after about 10 seconds she re started with THE loudest backfire (I guess that what happens when a 6.75L V8 that drinks fuel at the rate of 15L/100km engine does this) I have ever heard and besides giving the young lady in the convertible next to us a heart attack, it blew out the front Y piece collector completely, and immediately sounded like a V8 supercar.

I drove it for 4 weeks like this before I thought I had better fix it.
Ohhhhhhh man it sounded great.

So I can understand your conundrum about loud or quiet

For anyone interested.
Here is a link to my switch box problem.
