    I have no freaking idea why the default software doesn't allow uploads from phones or ipad's. I feel like they built it without having a clue as to what is going on in the world.

    got the compressors/ECU/valves all bolted up. measuring today in the trunk.Click here to enlarge



    I am impressed with the quality of the components.
    Equally, I think the system is very thought out.

    I just wish looming was put on some of the wires for cleanliness. I dont want to take apart the weatherpac connectors just to put nice looming on the wires Click here to enlarge

    Use the imgur app to upload and just copy/past the [img]***.jpg[/img] code it creates for you into your post.

    This was really annoying. that imgur thing sucked too. what a pain in the ass to upload for whatever reason.

    This looked like crap.

    Click here to enlarge

    So i scraped all the crap out of the floor

    Click here to enlarge

    This is what I did to insulate the trunk.

    Click here to enlarge

    I made a new trunk floor out of some 1/4" rubber mat. I think it cleaned up the trunk a lot!

    Click here to enlarge

    The bump stops were wasted. the differential actually dented the floor plan when it collapsed the bumps.

    listening to old skool baby.

    Click here to enlarge

    I found some polyurethane mounts, and put them on the doffelldinger spring to keep it quiet.

    Click here to enlarge

    I ripped off the old bonded rubber stops to the plate, drilled a hole in the plate.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge


    I found some poly bumpstops and installed them on the original plate. bam. thats how you fix things Click here to enlarge

    see, that time it showed up in my userCP.

    yesterday and a few other times when this thread was bumped, it wouldnt show up- so i had to look in my subscription list link and see if the post was replied to.....

    maybe it was when you were screwing around with the forum, IDK.

    Possibly. If it shows on one of the site it should show on all...

    Regardless, a new and improved notification system is coming.

    Ran some #4 power from the battery to the back. mounted a junction block and compressor relays.....and ran air hoses and level sensor wiring to the front floorboards, but can't go any further. I ordered some body plugs, since I have to cut 1" holes to make the connectors and air lines fit thru, then seal them back up..... Can't drill holes till I get the plugs. Can't mount sensors till I get the bag brackets.... Kind of waiting on parts.
