    When everything else on my truck is done, I'd like to have one of those covers!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I read the article where Peterson's (or was it 4-Wheeler?) tried to break one with a backhoe or some stupid thing.....the molten image stuff held up REALLY well. It's a little "blingy" but I think it would be cool to get one of those ugly monster face ones, and get some artist to airbrush it all "Cool" and scary....then clearcoat it and slap it on the D60.

    Other drivers might just pull over to let you by.... and for sure, you'd get the best spots at the mall.

    that stuff is way too expensive, never the less the best covers ive seen (except for ones painted like a smily fase with the blood dripping from its forhead).
