    Top Fuel System Front Wire Wheel Set System 17
    I have a Billet EFX Top Fuel front wire kit, System 17 by Machined Aluminum Specialties, Modular Rim Standard system.  Does any one know of a tutitorial on assembly?  Or have any tips on assembling it?  All that came with it is a "picture print out".

  11. wilderness1989 added a post in a topic How do I bend parts without breaking them?   

    Fill a coffee cup with the hottest tap water and put it the microwave for 30-45 seconds.  Dip the end that needs to be straightened in the water for 15-20 seconds then bend the end to the position you want it then do the other end.  You may have to experiment with the time in the water and bend slowly/gently.  Works for me.
