    Looks great!

    I'd be keen to see more photos - particularly of the boot setup with the tank(s) etc. I'd like to bag mine but I know it'll probably cost me more money than its worth :p

    Gmax's are my pick of those 3, but supers would be my choice

    While I like the Simmons I reckon they don't suit the statos that well though

    when I was rolling on sigs I was going to buy a set of 3 piece FR's (loooong before FR1's were around)

    I put them on my car, stood back and HATED how it looked. couldnt wait to rip them off and put the sigs back on haha

    In that photo at least I like the look of the FR's but every ones taste is different . If we all liked exactly the same thing there wouldn't be as much variety and life would be a little more boring for it

    Ha ha ha, I took it that you were talking literally about that photo and it looked as good as the weather did in the photo
    Well that copy and paste text didn't work, obviously I don't know how to do that
