yeah those door panels....the ones that you said "Hey dont open the door, my new panels will fall off." Those door panels? lol im sure they will look better once thier all squared away. Hell of a lot better then reaching for an arm rest and end up with White grease from the window motor on my elbow....lol.

dude i know but they still don't have armrests and i still need to make some handles for them but as of now they are bolted on and loko freakin awesome! Im debating on whether or not i should paint them or polish them up and swirl them.... kinda torn between the two.
