Also, I can appreciate the Supertanium bolts and krinkle-finish backing on the mirror and the exacting details.
Hi Steve,

Craig put a lot of time and thought into getting the cap exactly where we wanted it. First, he drilled the correct pattern into the body. He then added the appropriate spacers and gaskets and screwed the cap to the base and tightened the cap. Since the base had no holes drilled in it, Craig was able to locate and clock the cap assembly exactly where we wanted it and then drill the six holes into the base and mount it. I think it came out great!!
