That night, the LTD bodywork went back onto the shelf and the big Suzuki sat naked as I evaluated the stock plastics. During the initial flurry of work on this bike, I had cleaned, plastic-welded, cut, sanded, and primed the stock body. As I looked over the pieces more closely, the soldering iron came out again and I plastic-welded for a few more days. My sandpaper and files did a bit more trimming. It felt good and I was back to what I truly wanted when I bought this bike: A clean sheet of paper that could not be any worse, no matter what I did.
