Steel I guess then if you are using magnets. Sounds interesting - post some pictures.
Quick question, I'm trying to visualize in my minds eye what's under that part in the way of fancy-pants electronics (but the bikini girls just keep dancing in the way) - is there anything that could be affected by close proximity to a magnet?
Frik...nice fit. Great idea on using the magnet. Looks great with no bolt heads sticking out. Are you using blood blister makers (aka rare earth magnets)?
I'm planning to make a whole custom cowl, but if I was going to use the stock one, I would definitely be interested in these. In fact, I know there's going to be a future time when I will want a set, so I'll buy a set while they're available.

Well I'm in limbo, My wife's father died so she went back to the phillipines (she will come back 1/3) and the kids are off school for two weeks, needless to say I'm busy working while there is someone available to watch the curtain climbers.
So I may be a dipshit but how is a magnet that close to the electronic bits not gonna interfere?
Won't affect anything. They are pretty far away anyway. I have some very powerful magnets from some seriously large hard drives. They can break a finger if you get it in between two of them. I've had them close to electronics (NOT tube TV's although it looks REALLY cool if you don't care about the TV anymore) without any serious issues.
Oh, and we keep them in a Styrofoam container. Because if you ever snap them down on a flat metal surface you WILL NOT get them off. 400-500lb pull on these suckers with nothing to grab on to.
I do have some of the smaller variation, which are still very powerful, yet come in handy in the garage and elsewhere. I plan on throwing one in my oil pan (glued to the bottom) next time it's off, if ever. Might just be easier to get a magnetized oil plug.

Well I lost one of my covers last month on the way to work, it was windy and the magnets did not hold. So along with the back redesign I added two tapped holes.
I made the clamps quick and dirty just a popsicle stick sawed and drilled.
Those of you that are planning to glue the covers on can still get them for $20.00 plus shipping. I can tap the holes and provide the clamps and hardware for $5.00 more.
