Thx guys, coming along nicely, received the LOCTITE 545 yesterday, woot

Got your email Will, I'll do a manual adjustment, using the automatic feature might damage a tire/fender/axle i think, agreed :beer:

Driver side done, I kept the sensor closer to the center this time to prevent tire/sensor damage when turning

Since i've got no welding skills nor tools, I've decided to tap the hole (tap size 5/16-18 NC with 1/4" drill bit)

Added some thread locker and black adhesive sealant, that thing won't come off now :thumbup:

last shipment due next week, woot :beer:

Trimmed the fender liner (a little too high as shown below). I used two washers to keep the sensor mounting base flat. Pictured below is the suspension fully extended and fully compressed

Sensitivity will be low but you are right.
Better to be to short, rather than to long and snap a sensor. :thumbup:
Intuitively this statement makes good sense, but the reality with our sensors and the e-Level system is that as long as you have over 1" of travel, you will not see a noticeable difference in accuracy or performance. This is because the sensor itself puts out an infinitely accurate output by using non-contacting magnetic technology. The e-Level controller will then calibrate to the lower sensor travel and span the total travel to 100%. So definitely staying on the safe side of sensor travel is better than over extending the things :)

thanks for the clarification Reno, I'm glad I didn't waste time :D

Rear Driver side done, last sensor picture promised :p

EDIT: OffLineR was right, the rear sensor travel is too short. After doing the auto calibration on page 2 the rocker switch showed a warning about that. I'll have to move the ball further in the rear. I'll post picture :beer:

Wow.
That's awesome :thumbup:

Some Exo Compressor mount and rolling action today, FUN ! :D

Note: I re-arranged the compressor feet using a few washers to line up the holes and keep the EXO mount+compressor balanced (both side equally weighted)

how much of that did you pick up? and where?

I should apply some while the truck setup is getting redone.
I used 9 sheets of 1.67 sq. feet each ($100 CAD total) locally picked up at Hotrod Corner in Surrey BC,

check out the dealer page on the secondskin website :thumbup:

another test fit before drilling and screwing. Also added an insulation foam layer on Compressor/tank vertical board
