Made some more good progress today...

Got the gas tank ready today. First thing, was to cut off those useless tabs for holding on ugly plastic crap. One thing I never understood is why most of the customized TW200s I see never had these tabs removed, they just leave them on there, and in my opinion, they need to go.  A quick zip of the cutoff wheel and you are free of the ugly tabs.  Then just clean up the edges a little with a grinder. Done.

I got the edge pretty straight. Straight enough that you will not notice.

Right side tab free.
Blasting took a while. Those decals on the side are VERY thick.
I also removed the useless fearing tabs on the frame.
Altogether, there were three tabs I cut off and ground down.
I also removed the bearings from the wheels. This was easy on the front wheel, and VERY hard on the rear.
This is just so I remember how it goes back in.
