Well just made another purchase. Just bought 2 pair of 130W slimlites from rompalicious. Should be here in 3-5 days. Im also currently looking at picking up a CB with all the bells and whistles including a PA . Any suggestions for a good CB under $80 w/PA function?

for the louvers you'll want a high heat type of paint because the louvers do get very warm and will shrink/swell with the heat. make a build thread and post some pics!
