Is this a custom design or just your name, etc on it? How much extra do they charge?

I changed some colors and changed up the text on the side.

What I asked for is $10.00 extra. Still counting shipping it costs the exact same as 4 OEM Blade canopies.


Keeping the full look under raps. Just incase it don't come out as I asked but still looks good. Nothing supper different but still.

Fine. Your as bad as my kids. lol
The Greens and yellows are going to be neon. The side text is neon green with a smoked outline. the text reads "K U C ME NOW" I have M.S. and some colors my eyes don't focus on so I went with colors they do. I'm not the best at photo shopping so I'm not sure how it will come out. Not much different but more vivid than there OEM one.

That's guys.
I just took original and change colors in my pic editing program Photo Impressions #4

I e-mailed them the pic I posted plus a front view and asked if they could do the green text with smoked border, neon colors seen all I have seen was the solid blocked letters. They said yes in a e-mail I got today and asked if I wanted to start a order. I e-mailed back "yes" and asked them what's my next step but haven't heard back yet. Figured with weekend I may not hear till Monday some time.

Where are you getting 450X from, I can't find anyone cheaper than ampdraw. Crazy how price hasn't moved since I ordered it prerelease a year ago. Should have never sold mine.

I have a lot of credit coming from HH, so I'll be getting it from there. (credit brings price to same as or better than any web store).

Default Got my pic.

Got my pre clear coat pic today. 1 thing different from my design but that's ok. I was double guessing the smoke outline on lettering making it a little darker anyways so went ahead and approved it for clear coating.

From left to right: There OEM Pineapple 450EX, my redesign of it, and the final non-clear coated canopy.

Small changes on both our parts, but I love it. Can't wait to see it cleared and in person. The greens and yellows are a neon. Clear will drive that home.
