    Default Ducks covers, looking for input

    Here's what I'm thinking. Want to do the Red Sox B in the air cover similar to the S in the link below. So the Sox B cut out will be larger, with the smaller floating B, just like the S. Will also add K&N filters, fuel processor and will get the bike Dyno'd. Also adding a few red leds in the airbox to lite the B up nice. Questions. What color mesh should I go with? and what color should the edges of the cut outs be? Not sure on this, can go red mesh and black edges, or I can mix it up ....chrome mesh, red or black edges etc....? Bike is the 08 gray.....Anyway let me know what you think on the colors. Thanks for any input

    Red Sox B

    Might want to think of red edges with black mesh as well. Think that might make the "B" pop even more.

    Personally, I'd go red mesh with a white outline like in your avatar. It'd make the whole image 'pop' while not detracting from the bike or getting lost in the overall look Just my opinion though.

    Since the B is going to be chrome, I'd go with the black mesh, and red outline. Then red led's inside to backlight the B. It should look pretty cool.

    This is why I say red out line. Due to the fact that the B will be chrome not red. I think that the white trim wouldn't look right. Hell I am a RedSox fan so I don't want them to look bad, don't want any of my covers looking bad.

    Thin foam used for R/C airplanes could give it a unique glow

    I would probably take the man's advice who makes the covers. I had the same color scheme as your team and he did black mesh with red edge and here is what it looks like...SWEET!!!!!

    Covers look great way better in person. Can anyone provide info on LED lighting the covers. What works? How may are enough? Was thinking something like this. Is 14" enough for each side? Thanks for any input
