Default 3" INTENSE FWI Tubing! It'* here!

Yup, got it today! I guess you could say I am the test mule. Now I know why everyone rants and raves about it. This stuff is amazing! It is super thick, nice and smooth on the inside, and has the perfect flexability. I hope to get it installed today or tomorrow, but it seems weather is NOT permitting to do so. :( No more WAI for me! But, here are some pics of the tubing.

Didn't get one. NBD, I already have a big one on the back window, and one on my monitor. Maybe I'll order some white ones for the fuse panel cover under the hood.

Don't mind the redneck wiper fix. It was replaced shortly after.

We like to call that a 'template' or 'model'.

We use that to decide what pattern to cut the heatshield in the final material.
What do you call it?

Well crap. I bought the materials to install the tubing today, and Alas! None of my 3" pieces I bought fit the tubing! It seems Intense had sent me the incorrect size and sent me 3.5" instead of the 3". I measured this, and it is clearly 3.5" tubing. :( Well off to email them to get it corrected! No big deal to me, it'* a new size they are selling, and were probably used to cutting the 3.5" tubing, and gave me it by mistake.
