I really like where this is going. Those bags look big though.

And you may want to put a clear over your wheels for that raw aluminum look. The water spots them like crazy.

Nice to see you here SLY! I was following you on NAM ( NOT in that weird stalker way! )

I have had bad experiances with using clearcoat on bare aluminum. It makes the metal haze over and either turn white, or in the sun the clear will cook and turn yellow. Now clear on bare steel...
