looks good! :rockn: yeah I used truck bed liner in an aresol(sp?) can... it works pretty good, just make sure you clean the plastic good, then let it dry over night after you spray them.

that's what i used aswell. you should paint your shroud with it too so the texture will match all the way across. i havent seen it done that way but i think it would look smooth! what's the rack padded for?

I know it's a personal preference but why did you make them so short? I've had times when my whole pod went underwater and would have drowned over those.

I really like them low like that. I just like to ride water a lot so I would be nervous. I looks almost factory like that.

More pics please when it's done (and please continue to include the gf too :))!!

I like what you've done. I don't think I need the real high ones either (and don't underwater mud like these nuts ball on here :rockn:) and would like to see what yours looks like when it's done.

Trim your plastic with some black vacuum hose one you get finished. I'm ready to see it finished as well.

I looks great, like the short look. Shrouds are cheap if you dont like it, I butchered mine too the first time as well, so i got a new one.

well got my bike back from the dyno tune with the new snorks no more back firing. he said he changed the pilot jets and ajusted the screws. I only thing I dont like is when i hit the gas it has a hesitation to it. Is this cuz the snorks now do I have to put dual snorks on this thing to get rid of that. I tought if i keep them low and threw the bars it would not do this

So the hesitation is new behavior?
