The white walls do look cool, but I've got to tell you, one of the best changes I made to my Stella was when I ditched those Shinkos.

Congrats on the Stella! I'm quite jealous.

Slow shutter speed. If you're shooting on aperture priority and there isn't enough light, the camera will leave the shutter open longer to let enough light in. At slower shutter speeds, it's impossible to hand hold the camera steady enough. Your options are to a) open the aperture wider (if possible), b) set the camera to a higher ISO (the equivalent of film speed), or c) use a tripod.

I plan on painting my cover black & white, to mimic my tire. I want to keep the cover on, otherwise the exhaust will turn the whitewall BLACK. 'Course, I dunno how long I'll keep whitewalls on Ditto....

well thanks to the wreck last fall i will need to do some painting
so i figured now would be a good time to do something about the monsristy that they call a tail light
so what to do cut a big ass hole in the fender where the tail light goes


here is a test fit fit the frenching bucket and the new tail light


tommorw i will weld the bucket in place and trim the extra off
it will just be in primer for a while as its too cold to paint
