I decided to change the fork. The other looked a little odd with all of the room between the tire and the fork.

Well done, this looks much better :D !

Aren't those P2's meant to be on a 29'er?

Keep up the good work 8) ...

No. I thought so at first, but they are for a 26" wheel. http://www.bikeman.com/KON-P2MTN440.html

I had a nice surprise today. While putting on the front brakes, I noticed one of the brake bosses wasn't threaded. :?

I had to go to Ace to get a 6mm tap. Everything turned out okay in the end. I am just waiting for black pedal cages now. Maybe I will thread on some XT pedals and take some pictures tomorrow morning.

Got it completed today, still waiting for the pedal cages to come in the mail. I am extremely happy with how it ride. I have had only one other Ti bike, a Voodoo D'Jab. It was so flexy, I had to get rid of it. The Dean isn't flexy at all.
