I suppose nowadays it's unique to have tires wider than the wheels, nice set up.

I do suppose that's true, unfortunately.

Sorry.. got a little picture happy
Cool little doohickey. You ever think about washing that thing? It looks like you had your hood open in the middle of a haboob..

Donno if I should put this here or the sticker thread but nonetheless!

Figured since the side rails on the FXT were silver the crossbars would also look better silver. Rather than buying the Yakima Whispbars for $300+ I'd wrap the OEM ones in silver vinyl since I have a ton.

This is how they came out!

Looks great. You think the vinyl will hold up to use on the rack?

It's a pretty thick caliber vinyl but I guess we'll see! I threw my bike rack back on it so I'll report back in a little while how the attachments affect the condition of the vinyl.

How I did mine was I got some wrapping paper and taped it to my hood while the scoop was off. Traced the outline of the scoop from the hood to the wrapping paper then transferred it to some thicker card board. Transferred that to the plexiglass. Used my dremel to get it close to the shape I needed. Then used a stationary belt sander to get it exact.

I had to pull the exhaust to drop the rear diff, so I figured I would take some pictures of the other side of the "muffler" on my car.






And while it may not be "unique" because others have done it, here is the skid plate on my OBS.




I had to re-tap the holes in the core support because the threads were non-existent. I didn't like how they felt and didn't know if they would hold up to repeated threading/un-threading to remove the skid plate for changing the oil, so I made a bracket to bolt to those holes. This allowed me to get a good set of threads on the bracket.

I had to rethread my subframe as well. I just tapped it 2 sized larger though to have fresh threads and then got some matching bolts.

Does this count? These Yamaha arm bands have been kicking around the house for a while and I needed to find a home for them as the dog would make a quick snack out of them...I have a big sears roof carrier on my wagon for camping and stuff and the wing hits it. Unbolt one side of wing and BOOM...no more scratching...when they get haggard ill find some new ones as they are cheap enough.

Why not put something on the box to prevent scratches?

That would positively destroy your hands here in AZ in the summer! Looks cool though.
