Lookin good now...

... but you were WAY overdue. I just wanted to post up because the only reason to do this mod is to be able to easily change the fluid. If frequent changes (every fill up) are not done clutch performance WILL deteriorate.

Nice newb. My first thought was "I can't see it", then came the 2nd picture.

They are no lower than the stock ones. Ozzy, I think you can do it. If you don't scrape now, you won't with the ZL1 sides

Nice, I like the side skirts. I know I could search, but how do they attach?

Did you look at Spyder lights? I've thrown in the towel on this for now but was at a shop while my clear bra was being installed and saw they carried spyder lights.

Interestingly this same shop takes TWO Week to install Oracle Halos. I wouldn't pay someone to do this but thought it was ridiculous he takes two weeks.

I've started changing this after every other drive. My thinking is that I'll clean more of it out than once a month.
