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.
