    Nice ride, but those 2 piston calipers are looking kinda tiny on that big rig.

    True.. braking is for sissies anyway. Just pull those things off all together and drag a foot when you need to.

    Yeah, that was him. Small world.. He's thinking about the signing up with the air guard and was down there doing his testing. Guess I didn't show him enough Bender videos growing up to convince him to start pursuing a career as a pro freerider.

    Dogs make for good speed bumps as well..

    So, is that a sliver powder coat on there? The finish on the pic looks almost like the unpolished "raw" on my uzzi.

    How exactly did you go about stripping the paint and polishing it? Im thinking about doing it to my rig but if its alot of work I might pass cause Im lazy and got alot going on with school lol.
