Re: FV-QR (Aloha-boy)

Today I powered up my system and tested for air leaks. I used fuse 42 in my fuse panel for the Auto Pilot brain power wire. I will be installing the rear bags, lines and shocks this week. Notch, lines and fronts will be done at the same time after Easter.
All systems go!

Wassup kama!!! Yeah loooong time! We're good! How about you? Sweet if you have any questions just post it or IM me. Thanks, the setup was a borrowed idea that was tweaked a little. It's been a year having all these parts sitting in the garage, so with the wife in between semesters, I've been working on it for the past two weeks. Wow you been a busy collector! 337 looks good bro! Is that the project getting bagged? I'm planning on coming up in July, but short and for a wedding.

watching.. I wanna see how that notch turns up. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Me too! The friend that will do it is from Hawaii. He used to build 4x4's and exhaust back home. So I hope the notch will be cake for him!

Re: FV-QR (Aloha-boy)

Worked on the rears last night. Here's a comparison between the ksports rear spring and a bagyard bag.

ksports rear shock and a Bilstein rear shock.

First off, the nutserts were bigger than the hole in the nub. So I had to run to Home Depot and buy a 1/2" drill bit and drill out the hole bigger. I gotta say the nutserts were a pain to install!!!
That was the hardest part of the rears. Once in everything went smoothly! Bolt to bag distance.

Finished product.

I ran out of time and still gotta run the lines. I'll do it tonight. So the pics are all aired out.

Re: FV-QR (booyacah)

Thanks booyacah!
I finally ran the 1/4" rear lines last night. You know the saying, what goes up must come down! In our case what goes down, must come up or else we can't drive!
Last pictures until the fronts are done.

This is with around 60psi.

I left the rears aired to around 50psi overnight. I checked them this morning and I'm happy to report they were still up!
