aluminum is nice for sure. In my personal opinion though, no offense to anyone elses opinion either, ALuminum is more bling than anything .... in most cases. Some things are worth upgrading to aluminum, for the strength factor. However aluminum does not flex like the plastic nylon stock pieces. Aluminum looks nice but it bends and is twice as expensive as the plastic pieces. But for sure some things are well worth investing in. Like I said jus my opinion, not trying to offend ordisagree with anyone.

Been awhile since I updated this , so here it goes, put some lights in from billscustomrclighting,
at first I had him make me the 2 red tail lights 5mm, 2 5mm headlights and 2 8mm fog lights,
when I got them, I thought the 8mm where way to big to be putting on the body, so I went to radio shack and got some 5mm blue led's for the fog lights, and mounted the switch to the body and made it so the 9v battery can be dis-connected, and had to heat up the body to bend it, otherwise the lights where pointing in the air, still not what I really want but it will do for now

well before I changed it (from the 8mm fog lights) it was about $16.00 shipped
but when I went to radio shack for the blue leds they where $4.99 each, 3.99 for the bezel's,
you can't make them yourself cheaper then he does.
the bezel's I got from RS where alittle different, they used a rubber peice instead of plastic to secure them into the bezel, that the reason for the permatex
http://www.billscustomrclighting.com/
not sure how much fester paid for his leds for project inspiration
