I am happy with it, I really wanted it to fit in my garage. Even with the standard roof there are still a lot of height restrictions you need to watch for. Like no automatic car washes . I am in the hunt for some 16" black wheels right now, trying not to copy Geek's wheels .

There is a very similar product used in RC airplanes called "coroplast" - it is not exactly the same but close (you can google images).

If you are wanting to cut your own panels you might do better buying something like that in sheets?

I have used to build RC airplanes. Go to a sign store and buy a 4 by 8 foot sheet of it in a variety of different colors.

Ya my parking situation is one reason the high roof wont really work for me. The black wheels are sweet, a good look.

Looks great... But beware: That style of grille guard can cause far more body damage than it prevents. Good for keeping small stuff like branches and kittens off the bodywork, but on slightly bigger impacts, it can fold right into the fenders and hood causing lots of sheet metal damage that otherwise would have been absorbed by the bumper.

For sure, they don't hold up to animal impacts, as they're too thin of material and there are no mountings for the "wings" around the headlights. Still looks good, though.

You'd have to get into something like what Aluminess offers.

Ordered my Sprinter this week

Geek I was trying to find the wheels you got online but haven't had any luck. Are you able to still find them, I'm wondering if they don't stock them and you got lucky. Thanks Blair
