    wait'il you see the barrel & head fins
    things' gonna look like a bread slicer loafing down the spit lane

    (spit lane (n) the section of a highway where you lane split .... as in " Sure glad I had my yap zipped & goggles donned, while I was lane splitting the spit lane on 680 south"


    got to chem strip or better yet blast off crud like those covers, before rotary. less metal removal while getting the deep spots
