well its been over 3 years and time for an update:

the aluminum pans last well, but I am on my second set as the holes self widen. If the bolts are not 100% snug the pans can rock forward and back a bit and over time the bolts no longer hold the pans on. So on my second set I started using washers from the start and it helps greatly.

also the slight tick tick noise of the pans rattling on the edges gets very annoying with the windows down. I have been simmering on how to fix this, and got some inspiration from some large saw blades we have at work (16") when they come back from sharpening the tips are coated in a plastic dip coat of some sort.......

this week I got a can of plastic dip and rolled the edges in it and no more noise! I will update after some miles, I would think it will not come off but it might.
