I finally got a swing arm skid plate that I am probably going to install tonight if I can find the correct size bolts.  I left it parked in my father's garage and the dumbass bent the **** out of the rear brake rotor putting his engine hoist between the sprocket and the rotor.

I chained all my four wheelers together and then padlocked em down to the buildings' wall!! Lol. And I spent the night looking at 85 & 86 LT230Es' optional equipment from the factory.  I bought an accessory power cord that clips into a harness next to the battery, 12 volts & 10 Amps max!  I also found a backup buzzer that I may be able to install on my 87' 230.  I'm planning on adding lights mounted to my rear rack facing all different directions.  And I believe I have found a front rack for my 87' LT230E!!!!!!  They are effing hard to find but I believe I found one for around $70.00

I may have just figured out a way to share a pic of my 85' 250...
She may not be as glamorous as other 85's but it's very solid and a labor of love for me, my brother, & dad.
Everything in the motor is new, I actually found a low profile rear fender, FMF, rear cooler rack, all new suspension bearings... seals... buffers...slides, New Nissin rear rotor,  topped off with a star spangled seat cover...

And I just now realized that the pictures I posted on Facebook of mine, is actually my wife's Facebook account... which is set to private....  I'll try to post them to my Facebook... 1 minute!!!

 Day 2 of Tear down.
Removed Nerfs Will redye netting when I make up my mind on color scheme...
 Removed Junk Thumb Throttle and cable. Last thing I need for Carb that was just dangling by cable...
Unboxed Motor and discovered serious problem with sprocket guard bolt holes.
Inspected all top side components. Most of which are going in the trash. H-Bars are junk. Control levers Junk.Radiator Junk. Wiring Harness Junk.Half a tank of spoiled premix in the tank. JUNK!!!!! about the only thing worth a turd is the DG front Bumper and fresh rebuilt Suspension.
Spent a lot of time looking at Motor and referencing Repair Manuel.
Organized and Inventoried all my new parts that i pre ordered. Bolt kits Break pads clutch cable ect. ect... and started a list of all components that will be going to Powder coat with Chassis 
 I also Cussed a lot drank a few beers and some what organized tools.
Not to bad for 2nd Day

Finally got the balljoints needed to mount the 400ex spindles and hubs.  The OEM uppers will work.  The lower balljoints need to be for a 400ex that fits aftermarket a-arms, because the OEM 400ex lower won't work.  Now I just need to find a set of wheels.

Probably the last thing I did to my 250 was this new seat. I love it. Surprisingly it was for sale for a while on FB before I bought it.
