    Ha! I didn't even notice that, I thought they were both C14FF covers... My front has a strap 3" x 5/16" and no side straps...

    there is just enough clearance to pull the plug out with the rig on there. i hope /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif.at least there was when started making it. if it's to tight i guess i'll grind off a 1/4" or so of the plug, there plenty there to grind off

    It's good to see people making stuff like this themselves. I'm just wondering why the rear got more protection than the front? Like driving backwards?? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Let me just say that those things are AWESOME! How hard were they to make?

    Now some positive suggestions... the D60 protection needs to be the same amount (if not more) than the 14FF, because you will be going forward a lot more often than you'll go backwards.
