I could find new ones and raise them up but I'm undecided at this point. Pretty sure I'm just gonna leave the washer reservoir out so as not to destroy another one

Boring pictureless update. Started filling the holes in the core support yesterday and started sanding the headlight lenses. Got a migrane and went home and halfway home I realized I forgot pics. I'll grab some when I work on it again

Rubbing the washer res, awesome. lol


Piece of advice, the holder for the A/C lines, remove it and use padded hose holders. I can't think of what they're called. The bolt through ones that hold shit. Can get them in various diameters.
Depending on how much compression you have, you could rub that holder and the lines will pop loose.
Something with no edges to catch a tire works better.


As long as you have the Mach's apart, mind seeing if you can get a # off the high beam actuator?

The tire clears the ac lines by a mile. The washer reservoir hangs quite a bit lower. I'll try to find the actuator tomorrow

The ksports ride quality is excellent. Even set to full stiff. If you're looking to get a set then check out neverenoughauto.com
