no that's ok


was able to mod the box just fine. I need to still rivet some aluminum sheet to cover the now large hole, then put the lip i bent up in a vice to flatten it out. But It's pretty much done now.

Is it because some people are complete dumasses and constantly bother you with stupid problems or because its just a pia to make?

My friend would never come to you as long as it works right when he got it.
Let me know.

here you go matt and ben:

I took a piece of heater hose, filled it with silicone and then stuck two bolts on either end. gave it a session in the oven and a few days in the glovebox to completely cure.

screwed it and and will loosely tighten the top nut. allows for lots of movement.
