With the 2018 line of Kraken's just around the corner, it would be very nice if someone could make up a few sets of these.

They sold like molasses and were expensive to make... I may do it again in the fall after a bunch more new Kraken's get out in the field.

You can always leave them in the raw and save on powder coating.

I never sold them powder coated.....I did a few examples to show what could be done but I left the final finish up to the buyer.

Those thin pieces can have a rather lot of linear inches of cut to them, and every inch adds to the total cost.

When yall are trying to get a custom match color for your Argonaut Kraken accessories ask them to use Pantone color 485C. It is the closest, repeatable color guide I could get to Porsche Guards Red which is what I was going for, and when Dave made the labels we chose that color #

Man, I would buy one of those to match my 2016 SE. Classy gold and racing red to swap depending on my mood!

The fact that you tried to make the Kraken red Porsche red just makes me like you even more.
