Default new panels...



Step 1 - Completely ruin the stock panels by trying to paint them with multi-colors and masking (be sure to make a huge paint mess that takes an hour to clean up in the process)

Step 2 - Throw stock panels in the trash (Liberal cursing is recommended but not required)

Step 3 - Clean up huge paint mess (Liberal cursing is recommended but not required)

Step 4 - Make a new set of panels out of .040 aluminum sheet stock.

Step 5 - Cover them with white vinyl and 2 shades of blue duct tape, striped with yellow electrical tape...







Not bad. Better than bare aluminum, and easy to do. I certainly ain't pickin' up a rattle-can again anytime soon

This was mess-free and actually relaxing to do, vs. being a huge mess that stresses me out...

Looks like you also have issues posting photos... The rig looks really good upside down though!

That looks awesome, I was thinking of painting my panels when they arrive, but I may go with something like this instead.

Again?

It happens to me once in a while, the weird thing is you might be the only one seeing them that way. We went around and around for a couple days last time and nobody could figure out what or why it happens.

Sorry man!

Looking good there. If I look at this thread on the PC it shows up the right way but the iPhone and iPad they come in upside down. No idea why tho. It might be a photobucket issue.

Cheers Jarrod
