They are Hornblasters. I got them used from another member. Go to Hornblasters.com, they have a bunch of them.

Nice build.
Whats the scoop with replacing your cv's with those a-1 cardons? Are they stronger, or have better angles without binding or what?

I'm not sure on the decepticon thing lol.

I replaced the CV's becuase I blew one apart. I went with A-1 Cardones because they are a decent quality PLUS they are brand new, not remanufactured like most out there.

I have wanted them for a long time. The bead locks make them stand out so much more than the classic II's

Pretty much, it was one of the first mods I did. It took me longer because I did the auto mirror and lighted visors at the same time. I just studied the hell out of the directions and had some help from guys on the forums if I had any questions.
