Once we get them, are we able to drill holes and place LED marker turn signal lights in them? Click this for perfect example
or is there no room for that?
Are we able to use stock battery or is aftermarket necessary? What about stock air box?
Are holes pre-drilled on the fenders to place the under hood components back onto?
If we opt for the powdercoated black semigloss option on your site does that also include the inner fender linning be painted?
Any ETA on when you guys are going to make aluminum tube fenders?
What is THIS
plate for that sits behind the fender?
Thanks in advance!
Taking your questions in order...
Yes, the revised Tube Fenders are same as StormTroopers. The hood touching issue comes from two factors... our desire to have the sharpest possible angle for clearance, and the variability of sheet metal hoods. Not all hoods touch, but some do. We will be including with our packages a method of protecting the hood from the tube, something R&D is working on now.
As for the LEDs, how you modify the Tube Fenders is up to you, though it is not something we recommend or advise on. We are working to offer other marker light options besides the bullet.
You can use all your stock components including battery, etc, and yes, all the holes are pre-drilled for your convenience of installation.
The inner fender liner is aluminum so we do not powdercoat it.
That is an access plate both for ease of installation and for accessing other components that one may install on or around the battery/package trays.
As for Aluminum fenders, we are looking into it, but as mentioned before, it is based on market demand.
Thank you for the great questions!
