Finally finished modifing the blades to fit, hard work when on night to complete anything

I like how they dont intrude into view like retro fit blades

I had to cut the smaller blade down to fit properly
Also i have had to strip my interior down ready for water printing tomorrow, going to be like this for 1 week
