Thanks for the nice comment, Carmen.

You're welcome. My comment was (in part) based on your light grey color choice and all of the exposed galvy. I think that combo looks great together.

Hey Josh, yep the existing upper dislo cones have to be cut off. Need to retain the top of the springs and put cones on the bottom mounts.

It's definitely a black hole...
