Some impulse mods

i did a little machining to my impulse today, thought id post the results of it here.

i did this little mod because my soleniod gasket looked ****ty. this is a twofold mod: can get cheap orings, and it moves the solenoid down about 1mm, giving that much more threads for the screws to bit into.

and of course, it wouldnt be complete with a little "midblocking"

thoughts? ill probably do the oring mod to the shocker 4x4 i have too, if the gaskets are whats making it leak internally. i might just do it anyway, since the orings were $4 for a bag of 100, and ill NEVER use them all.

is the body flat on the horizontal cut or is it rounded to continue with the flow of the body? i want to do this to my stock impulse but dont have the means of doing it at the moment. i want to mid block it a little farther forward then what you have done and then round the horizontal cut to continue with the flow of the body to make it look like it was suppose to be that way

I machinrd it laying on its side with a 1" endmill so its rounded where it curves up. I didnt round the horizontal, opting for the "machined" look
