The Polar Express has been in hibernation inside the Kale's Custom cave for most of the winter. Thanks to Joey, she has been awoken with a new cage!

Looking pretty hungry now:

Cage came out great.

Now you just need to order the HD pads for the bars.

I've got 2 3' sections of pads. I know of a few obvious spots, but welcome any insight as where to pad...

One piece is dual-density with a slightly "softer" outside.

Pretty much any place that your helmet might possibly reach.

P.S. Great-looking car!
