I have Fiskers brand pinking shears and they are heavy duty. The Gorilla tape is very fresh and very sticky.

I agree about leaving the aluminum in it's "natural" state -- which saves me from painting them. I need to find a source of larger sheets of aluminum to fabricate replacement grill blocks and wheel skirts... so I can eliminate the tape. It works well and it's easy to do, but you have to keep after it and replace things as they fail.

The screens are less bright than optical mirrors are at night -- I don't get blinded by the headlights on vehicles behind me. The biggest hurdle with the LCD screens is cooling them on hot sunny days, and avoiding the reflection at night.

Sincerely, Neil
