Hehehehe, OP did this for ~$1500 and some elbow grease. If MC offered it as an option, they’d probably charge $5500.

This is great work, if I still had my X1, this would be my current off season project.

I got Poison ivy this week working on the fence behind my shop. 3 sleepless nights and a dozen or so YouTube videos on how to cure poison ivy. Best cure I found was straight bleach on the sores.
Pure BS! Who is your doctor?

Dawn dish soap with the red scotch brite will clear up poison ivy well too.
A belt sander would be faster

Sorry for the dumb question. I went back to the original post which had that info.

I am planning on taking on this project for our 05 X2 this off-season. Out of curiosity, what gas springs did you end up with and do you have a pic of the safety rod?

Thanks in advance!
