Many thanks to you and everyone else. I'm definitely much better with my hands than a machine when it comes to stitching.
I put the panty dropper back in line while I re-image my R100/7. When I'm ready to paint the BMW, I plan to paint the panty dropper, too. The plan is to paint my DR370 at the same time. Hoping it will be easier and more efficient for the way I'm set up to do a few at the same time. My other CB750 chopper may fit into this group as well. Regardless, I have a Mid-Ohio deadline in July to bring a few of these for sale.
