    OPAS Removal

    So. You're supposed to "push the rubber seals into the hull".. Then what? You just leave that rubber accordion looking thing chillin' on the inside of the hull?

    I pulled mine out. Like Red devil said, you need to pull really hard. If I remember correctly, I also sprayed some WD-40 on them to make them slide out a lot easier. You may also want to add a little back and forth twist when you are pulling them out.

    Alright guys, here's where I officially admit to the world I'm mentally retarded. I think ya'll were thinkin' I was talking about removing the metal rod?? The rubber hose piece came right off after I loosened the "plastic rod grommet" on each side. No pulling involved at all. I didn't realize it was that easy because I didn't print out the pictures to look at while removing the OPAS.
