Trying to figure out what I should do with my old gaming laptop. Maybe I'll start up a crypto-exchanger. Or just sell the laptop

Received my Powell harness bar yesterday (Installing it for strength, not for mounting a harness).
Plan on putting it in on Saturday. Powell's install instructions sound simple enough:

Knowing my skill level, knowing Cobalts and knowing Powell's tendency to oversimplify these things, I'm counting on at least a half day

Anyone have experience mounting one of these puppies?

PM me your email address and I'll get Gloria to respond today. Please don't go to OTTP. Josh's products are far inferior.

Do what you want, not what others expect you to do.
