Greetings berrybus, and welcome to the group.   :)

Any luck with getting this answered?  You may want to add a couple more details to help in getting a response.  'Course, some of the more tech savy may know exactly what is being requested - and I'm just off on a tangent again...  :-\

Best Regards, Phil

I think the bow actually goes towards the driver's side, but I'll have to look at mine when I get home tonight.

Sorry.

Heavy storms last night, and I just plain forgot. Didn't read the boards when I got home.

I'll send myself an email to remind me, and will get it for you this evening.

I looked for a photo on my website, but don't seem to have one of that side.

OK, the link leaves the steering box straight, curves towards the center, curves back just over straight at the frame, and goes around the airbag within a couple inches.

Hope this helps. if not, I can go take some photos tomorrow (or when I remember to read the board again).
