    Thanks, I want to put more stickers on it,it's not easy finding the right size though...
    Most for cars are too big..And I think the ones for models would be too small....

    Lookin' good, HD! How 'bout a metal tag that says "Body By Fisher" 8) You might still find one in a bone yard. Of course, it would only have meaning to an old guy, and you won't be old for two more years. :p

    I share your grief and sure there are others who feel the same way.I want to try a 26x3" tire on my build but the only tire I can find that size has poorly designed flames :x Or how 'bout a slick in a 2.75?Maybe a slick to fit a Fastback :roll: Maybe we should start bombarding a tire company with requests for some cooler tires in different sizes.
