so i had a busy weekend....
painted my machs..
and i know not everybody likes the whale tail, but i do... and i got a helluva deal on a CF one from a local member Blue5ive (formerly known as DirtKona)
just for giggles... don't worry. i didn't really do this to get it off. just a little pressure from one of the dull ones as a slight pry bar.
on to pics... Thanks to 71Shadow and his nephew Drew for helping me with the install.
