Thanks for the offer but, I don't think I'll be in the market to sell them any time soon now that I've stripped it down for paint.

But if I do decide to sell them, you'll be the first to know

I was just thinking maybe if you wanted to start with a fresh set.. or if you ever want to go with street plastics or if you ever mess them up and dont want to repair them..

now get to work! i wanna see the results.
