Nice compressor bag! WOW! How long did that take?

Quite a long time.  I put the compressor bag on the car when I first got it.   Luckily I found it before it started eating the wiring from the leads.

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Well I new I would have to do something to help me handle the PBS and 2D install and fab.  No telling how many times I'll have to pull this pig in and out.  So now it's done and I can start the tube cutting and bending.

yea, neat idea.  Is that a farm jack with all-thread adjustment?  I usually stack enough 2x4's and misc wood on the floor jack, to make it really un-safe.

Anything that makes life easier is a good thing!!
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

That is the main part of a MoJack the company that builds them is here in Wichita and they sell there rejects to the Yard Store. I found this one stuck in a corner the last time I was up there.   It has a drop safety on it to. $40$ was score for me.
