That looks great. Then throw some white or amber leds behind there and you will be set. :bigthumbsup:

Tough call. As far as the two choices above, I think you should go yellow to make the chrome flames stand out.

However, black, as stated above, would look great as well because the yellow highlights of the flame will really show.

I was not implying that Corbin is selling them, just that they used them on their model bike. You were asking about whether to paint them yellow, or not. I just provided a picture of a bike with yellow filters for your perusal.

Guess you mis-understood my intentions, no problem though.

As for chrome, there was a time when I hated the stuff. Now my bike is a rolling chrome and polished metal piece of work. Yeah my filters are chrome, but I have Big Airs and they are either chrome or black. And since my bike is silver I'll keep them chrome.

Their "model bike" is Screaminyellowzonker's.

[email protected] i agree! i just dont think the chrome mesh gets noticed like the yellow would. @Nemo i agree chrome and yellow and i guess white gonna hold on to the white stripe till i decide to get a custom paint! but i kind like saying its an Le lol. @cbxer55 ok thanks i've seen a few covers that ducks did for guys that were yellow. just wondered the thoughts were between the 2.

I am the type that loves "depth" on things. With the yellow, it washes out the yellow outline of the flames. If you went yellow, you might want to paint the flame highlights black them to make them "pop" on the cover.

:bigthumbsup: Now I can't wait to see them. I built Len's site and unfortunately have gotten to have to see every duck cover he has ever made. So, instead of being happy with a big air kit, I keep wavering back and forth on making a change. When I am almost happy again, you have to make a post and show off them bad boys and now I am thinking again :doh: :D
