    It's only the link on the T/B. Nothing flash, but does the job.
    I was limited on height and angle as the bracket that holds the CC and the throttle cable is custom made and doesn't
    line up 100 %
    Any way here it is as requested.

    That looks alot better than anything I have tried making. I always start out focusing on aesthetics but end up going for functionality, usually leaving a big ugly mess that "works"
