    Are you going to take all the mounts/fabbed up brackets back off again and get them powdercoated or zinc plated or something? Otherwise they will just rust right?

    Good to see your still about an posting, while I agree with people's right to disagree I don't agree with the way some people have been so rude and personal about it!

    Cheers
