Looks nice. Seems to be really similar to the stock one in the diagram.

You should probably secure it though. I can see it flying forward and slicing off your head!!

Edit: Oh wait I see a strap, you just took it off to take pics probably

Im probably gonna go over it again with black or bedliner since it has some scratches and what not. Then im thinkin about paintin somethin on it. Decepticon logo has been rattlin around my head for awhile but im not sure on that yet lol. But whatever logo i put on itll be the same red that i painted my tow hooks and tie rod.

Yeah i would do the jack o lantern teeth in red if i did that but not sure how itd look. I wanna do the plane style only thing is im not sure itd look good head on a flat piece like a skid.



Head on doesnt look as good imo.
