AGP #357 - ''Qld Trailer Trash" - New Pup

AGP is now a "Happy Chappy", flung the dreaded Piezo Disc and replaced it with an MGB 2.2k Micro Single Coil Flat Pickup, and it now sounds great!, instead of "Trashy" :-D

"Thanks Bob", Just like a Bee!, a Little Critter with a Big Bite!  :-)

Thanks 'UJ', I try not to cut into or cover up the numbers etc on the Plate as much as possible, hence the position of the Pup which I have used on quite a few LPG builds.

Have been looking for a decent looking and priced Motor Cycle Licence Plate for some time now, from Aus or US etc, and finally found one a few days ago, they seem to be as Rare as Rockin' Horse Poo!,  but when seeing this one for $13AUD, I just had to have it.  :-)

"Thanks Jerry", this one was meant to be built in the "Krusty" style, might have to krusty up the new shiny Pup cover though!  :-)

That's the "Bees kneecaps". Great job AGP!

Yas, sir. I like that ratty plate and what you did with it. I think that is a great spot to mount the pickup.
