Hello again fellow Barthers.
Continuing on with putting some love back in our old, new Barth.
After tackling the front brakes and master I noticed the airbags were trashed.
Ordered the parts. About a Benjiman.
Trying to stuff those airbags up into that small hole was a bugger.
Made me have even more respect for child birth...
Heat gun. A good heat gun.
Hot water. Zip ties.
Oh and gloves if u don't want to burn your hands rolling up the hot rubber bags.
Soapy water and Viola.
Getting the zip ties off was fun. I learned on the 2nd bag to cut as I cleared the hole..
Seems daunting sometimes. Getting this big lady ready for camping.
Thanks for this forum.
Please go vote everybody.
Economy is doing great.
Let's keep in going.
Cheers,
Barronjr

Welcome to the bruised knuckle club. Mechanic

The front bags are indeed a job to weasel in there. I used some hose clamps and a screw gun to squeeze them through the hole.

You should notice the improvement in the front end. I think I ran about 60-70 psi in mine.
