There's nothing like that new part smell...

Sounds like it's coming together, Ed.

U-Bolt plates are upside down. The curve is to keep from kinking/breaking the spring. Get back out there and do it again!

Unless of course they are curved on both sides, but I can't really tell from the pics.

how hot??? depends on the temperature outside. I've been able to touch my stuff after a long trip, but other times I've not been able to touch it wothout getting burned. I wouldn't expect to see anything more than 150-160 degrees on any give day. my number may be a little high, but if its 100 degrees outside, it may heat up 50 or 60 degrees while running it...
