>GRIN< Hey Frank, she looks good. That was one hell of a project and I don't think 70's got anything to do with it. Looks great. Love the back up light on the top left corner. Well done Mate. :)clap

Yes there called Air Tabs You can look them up @ www.airtab.com  I purchased them from an outlaw  operation and they came without any instructions. when i was installing them (backwards) i saw the address When i contacted them they sent me the instructions . i let them know i had installed them backwards & they stated they had tested them both ways and they were 75% efficent the way i installed them (with glue and a screw in ea) So i cannot change them They said it was very common to install them backwards  Before they started incl instructions with ea shipment . On MPG road tests i showed a 1 1/2 mile per gallon increase  over the same road that i had traveled many times Since then i have installed Fuel Injection & a 4 speed w OD trans But have not been able to make a good MPG run yet  5.7 1995 Chev eng veh weighs 11200 lb run tires @ 70 PSI W 410 Diff Frank

Job well done Frank. Are you putting stripes on or staying white?
