    .........hmmmmm..... well.. it would appear as though i cant put up a poll for some unknown reason so just post up your choice.

    paint em black or leave them polished
    gloss or flat
    paint or powdercoat (powder coat wont happen for a while due to finances.)

    thankyou for your support....

    nay

    Keep the aluminum/steel...whatever that thing has

    Paints just something else you'll have to maintain so it looks 'nice'

    well thanks.... i think...

    im not gonna leave the polished aluminum, and anodizing and powdercoating is too expensive right now, so im gonna paint them today and when i can afford it ill powder them.
