    Majority of the day was spent working on an ATV tying up the bay the goat is going in. Drained the rear tractor diff., no surprises, magnet clean, just some old stinky gear lube. Pulled all the taillights from the carriers, some good and bad. Extra to my needs today a carrier taillight access panel w/screws.

    Working on the folding troop seat latches and lights now. Mark, this is what your latches looked like, you will see when they arrive the big difference. No amount of soaking would have fixed them. I am going to rebuild a set of the nasty rear lights into a set of front lights. Will post an after shot when I finish blasting and priming.

    One of the current seats I have the latch body and catch mechanism look like they've rusted into 1 piece. I doubt I could get it to move with a sledge hammer. I'm looking forward to the new ones as they're about the only big parts (other then the tops) I'm missing.

    On your Blackout Drive Guard is it held on by 3 or 4 bolts? I picked one up at the MVPA Convention and there are 3 bolt holes on the guard but there are 4 bolt holes and a wire hole/grommet on my Goat. Just wondering if there is a different guard for the M151 vs the Goat.

    The manual shows 4, the goat mount I believe is different because of the angle of the cowl, where as the M151 is on a flat surface. Mine is mangled but I will confirm it. Probably used the 4 bolt mount so they would not interchange.

    Great. Okay add one more thing I need to look for. Guess I can use this for now with just 2 bolts.

    Both have 4 holes, the portion where the light mounts has a steep angle to make up for the cowl angle.

    That 1st should polish out. Not sure about -#2.
