Work on these yesterday evening. Here is the air bags. Yes that is electrical tape super glued to the original kit piece's. The tape was trip down to 1/2inch tall. They do compress nicely an the tape doesn't stick on the inside either.

Hi you all, well, I did some more work to the air bags. I'm still working on them yet. But I wanted to give you all a walk around kinda at how these looks when they are compress.

Compressed.. To being uncompressed.

Thank you all for the kind comments. I am working at hopefully maybe having another small update up tonight as well

Jim you are a man of few words, but many tallents. Looking good.



Jim, thank you also for your kind comment too man. I do my best at things. If I feel I need to explain something then I do an then I also let the progress photos speak as well. Sometimes few words are good an yet the photos does the speaking job.

If anyone of you see something an would like to know how I pulled it off, please don't be afraid to ask me at all. I'll do my best to answer.

The rim. I took an looked at it. I wanted to give it alittle more detail so I started to add a valve stem by drilling into the rim from the other side. I used a cloth pin as the stem an glued it in place.
