The old school best way to straiten out coiled tubing is to uncoil it, then pull it with a come along. It works awesome. I've done tons of that way.

with the new sensors you can have as little as 1 inch and as much as 4 inches of travel, the older sensors had to be kept in the 2.75 inch range.

looking good, very clean install

Re: 1950 3100 Full Custom **GunMetal**

Thanks yeah after reading the directions last night and seeing the extra piece of paper I figured that out ... They need to update those instructions lol I got a little confused


And as far as the positions all I should have to do is run it through the calibration thing it states and should be close on my desired positions ??

Re: 1950 3100 Full Custom **GunMetal**

Got the Accuair all buttoned up and it came out great and went off without a hitch ! Very happy with it all ! Gonna start hanging sheet metal then I need to make the decision if I want to paint it now and put it together and have a little fun with it this year







And got the pedals from billet specialties all mounted just have to fill in around the brake petal for a better fit and finish

Re: 1950 3100 Full Custom **GunMetal**

I have never liked headrests, especially if you can see them through the back window.

I also saw that Nova last weekend and I thought the color combo was striking. I also liked the stain/flat finish under the hood.

I ordered this piece and molded it into my console. http://www.dorbritzdesigns.com/produ...-pod-universal

here is a picture of it molded in the console, I just need to finish blending it in and finish the console.
