    still waiting on the pucks coming in to deliver to the poly place. I have the first 10 shells made and will be making the tubes Monday night so I should have the first batch by the 20th hopefully sooner. The trip to meet a new grandchild has delayed me but St Paul is slow on the long pucks and I havent seen the new set from a member here yet so .... I will notify all as things unfold

    throwing it out there any interest in color matched pucks to your plastics and if i make them in colors I have black ,blue ,red and yellow plastic so far and if in matching color should the molds be textured like original pucks or smooth like the other body parts, smooth looks best to me but how much interest is out there ?

    by the way thanks to the other member letting me model the short frame pucks off his new set they came in yesterday!

    My two cents would to do them in black. Colors may look weird, plus you need to be able to match the color of the bike pretty closely or people will bitch that they dont match the body work.

    If you do them textured, people will complain that the texture doesnt match. If you intentionally do them smooth, then they you can tell them to put up or shut up.

    Well I just got a new tracking number from St Paul my order got mixed up and sent to Australia and has been reshipped UPS to be here monday so all parts should go to the poly manufacturer by Wednesday the 12th so the 20th is optimistic likely two weeks from then so looking at June 1st to have the first set in hand.
    I'm going smooth on the pucks and trying red and black first.
    I want red on my XT to match so if the poly is opaque enough to hold the color to the edges I'll be the guinea pig!
