Some guys consider it overpriced but I like the Competitions Werkes kits.

I like keeping the stock fender on the shelf for just in case.

Well for me the difference between $150+shipping and $0, made it pretty darn over priced!

I wasn't picking on you - just trying to help the original poster with options.
The pic you posted is beautiful.


Now if I told you that your mother dresses you funny - then I am picking on you.

I understand I don't feel picked on at all. No offense taken. I just debated which way to go for a long time and as easy as it was to just chop it off with a dremel tool, I just couldn't in my own mind justify $150 for not much more. This just seems like such an easy and simple solution to that big ugly eye sore.

My Mom did dress me funny and you didn't have to go and bring that up now did you? WhAAAAAA!

No I didn't integrate I used the Rizoma Zero signals. I really like them you can see them lit from all angles and they're really bright. I've really thought about integrating them with the brake lights so they come on when the brake is applied but my Clearalternative tail doesn't have seperate sides for signals so it would only work partially.
