That's an interesting approach over the targa.  So it wasn't hard getting the top to fit?
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

It was enough slack in it that no modification had to be done. Only thing was velcro didnt reach so I put self tappers with big plastic washers

Great work OK12V !!  ;)

I do have a question though , its about one of your first few pictures  you posted ...  :) :)

[attach-1]

The cotter pin located in your tie-rod end .. I am not sure if it's the angle of the picture , or it is actually  the way you have it installed , but it appears you only have 1/2 the cotter pin in use ? 

Any particular reason for this ?  ;)

I ask because of all the thousands I have installed or seen through the years , they have the full spit section pushed through , then bent open to maintain retainment  ..  [approve] [approve]

Yeah.  I'm 6+ myself.  The current cage design has reminded me a few times.  It is concerning should there be a roll.  That's one of the reasons I'm thinking exo, even though most lack visual apeal.  Yours is a good compromise.

Good question. Its been awhile since Ive done that. I would have to go back to the shop and look at it. Knowing myself, and looking at this picture, I might had a bigger size cotter pin on hand and could fit only one leg... Thinking I will put the right one later... Right.... :)
