I am debating on which rubber stripping I should get for a lip. Ive found these 2.
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...&storeId=10051

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Md-Product...ottom/19869744

Any thoughts? lol They are both cheap and I would probly wind up having it shipped. I know the walmart one isnt sold in stores. Im sure the Home Depot one is but its really far away.

to me it looks like the walmart lip would work better.. the HD one doesn't look like it has a 90* angle to mount to the bumper. but what do i know.

Very true about the lip part. I will order the walmart one soon. I cant order too many things at once because I start feeling like Im wasting money. lol These next few months is when both my parents bdays are, my sisters bday, my gfs bday, fathers day and mothers day are. So yea I tend to order alot of stuff. Butttt Ive sold some things and im shipping some bmx tires out here in a bit.

Yeah I have clipped a tree before. lol Twice I believe. Alot of that was my best friends property. He lives next door, so its like its my own property. haha I actually fell maybe 3 minutes after the camera shut off. The memory stick can only hold so much. It wasnt bad, just washed out on a turn. I wanted to see what it looked like with the helmet cam tho. I went to review it and it shut off a bit before it.

I repainted my interior! I will post pics of it later.

While I was waiting for the paint to dry I ordered a new bezel kit for my radio. All of the tabs were broken and my radio was always sliding down really far.

I got this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/290674150858...84.m1438.l2649

Its what I had before, but it literally just sat around my radio. All of the tabs were broken and the radio would move around alot. lol

I wound up repainting all of the red, black with red splatters. Looks sooooooooooo much better. I was afraid the red splatters would still look dumb. But it looks really neat. Itll look even better once I get some red LEDs.
