    yes..I know it's geeky..but I'm over 50 so I can be anything I want now. (and not care..lol).Thanks to Metal Master I'm one happy camper now.It arrived yesterday and I gave it one coat of paint (possibly will chrome it later on) and attached it (had to file the holes a smidge).I didn't like how you could see thru it so I temporarly cut out a piece of black plastic (from an old garden container and stuck it behind. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to be! I may still paint in a little red dot in the visor to simulate the laser..but I'm going to wait an d see.Thanks again MM!

    Very cool. You should put an led behind it to get that "laser" look you so desperately desire.

    A Taco toaster! It looks great.

    Powder coating is another great option. That is what I did and the powder coating helps smooth out any imperfections. Good luck.

    Hahaha.."Taco toaster"..that's hilarious!!! I named my truck T2 because it's my 2nd Toyota but it could also stand for taco toaster.
    ..and thanks for the idea of powder coating it..I'm going to look into that..:)

    A LED in the scoop! Too funny! :)

    Now you just need to black out the bumper and the lower valance so it will match.
