I could be wrong, but I think it's the Motion Pro one. Creeper will have to tell us, I don't have one.

mars said he had a screw that was hand adjustable - think he means the Zipty one...

The cheaper screwdriver is this one:

Pilot Screw Adjusting Tool
Designed for those hard-to-reach air/fuel mixture screws on most multi-cylinder motorcycles. 110 degree angled head extends reach 1 inch. Overall length is 17" with flat slot blade tip.
08-0119 $29.40

Some tape is cleaner than others. With my neighbor's tape, the adhesive burned off clean, but with the tape I got at ace hardware it burned off with a kinda ugly black. I'll have to borrow his tape again and check the brand. That's what is in the picture below after several hundred miles.

Thanks Griz... I didn't invent this stuff... just tested and documented it until the path was clear. Pretty close to the info I gave you last year. It ain't rocket science, but it's been a long while since it was posted in a all-inclusive, step-by-step format.
We were getting the same "how-do-I?" posts over and over... so I figured now was a good time.

Creeper-

You should make a "Team Krylon vs. Team Bedliner Extreme" poll while you are at it!
