While I can't argue with the accuracy of BillCarson's post, I'll just stick to the automotive version of a termination box. :lol:

Sorry, been distracted by a few things the last several months (carb airbox, exhaust size/H-pipe upgrade and termination box, and a few weight reduction items) so I haven't had a chance to do any...

I'm running behind on that. The suspension and exhaust changes, along with finally building an air box for the cowl induction have eaten into my free time. I still need to make some sort of in-car...
