This looks great Alex, are any of these beauties destined to be runners? Did you anodize the mirror?

Runners?? Nawww... onceI finish them all, I'll keep the 2 I like most and toss the other 2 on Ebay. I painted the mirror the same color as the body. Mike did a great job on them. I like them beter than the stock mirrors. See ya Sunday!

Mario - Paint is Parma Metallic Black and the cab is Metallic Gray (or something like that - I tossed the can). Note that the metallics are a little bit of a pain because they tend to leave little metal flakes that stand out here and there.

Chris - I don't post items like this for sale. I prefer putting them on Ebay because it takes the guesswork out of pricing them (I don't believe in that 'make me an offer' BS). I place them on Ebay starting at $1 with no reserve and I let the price fall wherever it lands. I figure that's the true value anyway (what anyone is willing to pay) regardless of how much money or time I put into it. My enjoyment is in building it anyway.

Excellent Job Alex, and might I add that your seemless backgrounds on your photographs look Awesome.
