    your right brian, i didn't go ss. but the 16ga feels pretty bulky. i'm going to find a nice epoxy paint to seal this bad boy up with once it's all pieced together.

    the stock gutter? it's a pile of bent-up rust.
    didn't want to fork over the money for the ccot....
    any why would i? it's funner and more irritating
    to make your own.

    The stock stuff is probably gone to the rust gremlin.

    Looks good man. keep us posted, I'll be doing the same in a few short weeks, I thought about doing mine with fiber glass as I bought the sides. I'm thinking it too be too much of a PITA.

    I may like to copy your idea if it works out good. NO sense in reinventing the wheel right?---Kenn
