Post #293 on this thread explains what I did before install.http://www.airforums.com/forums/f464...e-26279-3.html
I decided against powdercoating as it would require disassembly.(not something I wanted to do on a new unit), If you are going that route there are posts on the haha thread that explain the overhaul procedure. That thread was an invaluable resource for me when I was going thru the install.
Most Important, keep the WD bars greased and the Zirks adjusted properly, the end of spring nub's should protrude slightly into the bar mount. Too far and the end will shear off. All strut bar mount holes should be ROUND.
Do NOT lube the internal threads on the jack bars as they won't hold a setting when underway. I have disassembled for cleaning.
If you don't have the manual you can download it at the website.
Good luck...keep us posted!!!

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
