Jabe, are you going to use a guide/pulley in the middle of the steering run? I ask as because my hull has holes at the rear dash and was not sure if I needed to use them to keep the cable tighter to the hull and out of the way where is swells in width. Also, did you decide to let the cables go out through the small gap between the front dash and the hull or under it?

Do you plan to drill a hole in the bottom of the front seat, attach a hose and run it back to the gas tanks as part of your Methane Reclaim System (MRS) modification?

need to know for cushion redesign...




Interesting! So... 'Flex-Fuel' then?
