All bonded in just need to tint them to match the rest.. Very Happy







While moving some stuff about in the unit i found some crap quality 60mm stainless tube it was a bit short for side bars so i welded some bit's on to the right length..






Started to shape one end then offered it up to the van to see how it looks. Very Happy
