I saw the $65 deal on the SOLID covers and ordered a set for xmas . The price is right and my tinfoil 8.8 cover is bashed and leakin a little. Now.... if only santa could put them on for me before I get home.

I ordered a set of solid covers b/c that $65 was tough to beat.....I like the solid logo on the front personally but wish my covers had a drain plug

thats kind of surprising to hear. been thinking about getting a kit but worried about it warpping.

I taqlked to dan in length about them, I needed one for my 14b after I shaved it. Not only was warping a possible issue, but after welding you have to clearance the cover for the bolts to sit flush.

I have a solid on the front and the ruff stuff on the rear.

I welded my ruffstuff D60 front. It warped .005" on the retarded hot setting. Clearing weld out from around the bolt circle was the hardest part and that's cause I'm dumb and just kept running a bead. Ruffstuff FTW.
