Default Stinkys K5's install.................

Ok so now the weather here is starting to turn a bit nicer, I took the opportunity to have a little play around with mounting positions for the K5's.

My favourite idea is Slightly crazy and mounting the whole lot on top of the rear bed cover and having it all on display, but having some kind of stainless steel chequer plate cover made that is removable, so if I wanted to show them off I could, but I think it would be huge and look a bit weird...........

I am hoping to go for a Manual & push button system which isn't really hard to do, apart from where I can mount my Graham White valve inside the cab. The GW seems to be really stiff, so is going to need to be securely fastened somewhere!

Anyway here's a couple of pics of one of the mounting options. I am just playing with ideas, however I shall most likely be mounting them face downwards and drilling the manifold to bolt them to the floor of my bed. This way, I will have plenty of room for my 8.5g tank to fit underneath? I am possibly going to lose the spare wheel, but that I can mount that on top of the Mountain top cover if I have to?

With them pointing downwards they should most certainly make the ground shake lol lol

I just need to source some security type bolts to fit the Bell's to the manifold with, coz sure as hell some muppet will be along to remove the K5's from me. (My neighbour had his catalytic converter cut off from under his car during the night the other night, apparently they are packed full of platinum? You can imagine his face when he got in it to drive off! He said he thought the car had exploded up as he turned the key!)

Anyway, here's a few shots of the K5's looking rather sexy underneath my Truck (and yes I know I have a little leaky from the diff oil seal.









I will update later as I am going to be playing again today

Oh I will find a way to fit them on the bike trailer! I can see it now, riding down the street and blasting this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaSOEj2Kpsk while honking the K5's and shouting ALL ABOARD!

Ok, so on the eve before the first day of British summertime, I found myself scratching my testicles and deciding exactly how the K5 install was going to go........

I have a 9 gallon tank & little set of K5's and two compressors to hide under the truck.........here's how it went.

My beautiful K5's in all their glory!







Me building up the 9gallon tank......... What size is that outlet on the end of the four on the front? It's bigger than 1/2", is it inch? ........
