      more like worst. plate and 8 screws and my collarbone was in bits.
      then the mk3 i bought to build got stolen outta the driveway.

      its all good now tho. nearing 2 years since the surgery and i have 100% movement and no pain. hopefully yours goes just as well. that first ride/jump back feels so good.

      All “C” model VIAIR compressors are equipped with a stainless steel braided leader hose and a check valve to keep the compressor from restarting under pressure which can create an amp draw spike and can cause motor damage.

      may want to address that with your hardlines, when you remove the leader hoses from the compressors you remove the check valves
