    but I like my "meep!"
    anyway I don't think Hellas come in gold, I'd have to sandblast and repaint them anyway. my mind is set.

    The horns are incredibly weak...the "meep" is something akin to the roadrunner...and really doesn't even get the attention of a person crossing the street. The Hellas on the other hand...oh man, I love scaring everything in site with them.

    As Mark said...just get some fine grit sand paper for cheap...a rattle can of whatever color paint you want for cheap, go to town for about 10 minutes sanding. Spray 3 or 4 coats of paint, let cure over night...and ready for install. Simple job! I did mine blue...and will probably take em off to do them "Cherry Blossom Red" (another term for pink, )

    $80+paint vs. free+paint? hmmm lemmethinkaboudit... nope.

    plus I like my meep! just the way it is. Says "WTF are you doing moron??!?" plenty.

    As for pink - real men aren't afraid of pink

    They are. Totally. You know what they say about guys with small hands, right?
    (they can fit in tight places )

    I have big, strong, good hands. Perfect for my job.

    (Rock Biter could do with a pedicure though.)

    they do sell prepainted hellas, red i think is the cheapest, buy a red scuff pad from auto store and a tack rag which is a sticky wrag to get all the dust from sanding off. unscrew all the screws for the horn pieces, scuff, use wrag to wipe off, paint a few coats, let dry, post nudez, reinstall. the relay is easy to setup as well to make your own. i wouldnt spend like $40 or whatever that one place that makes em charges. you can even run em without the relay and very simply setup (even though wiring to the relay is very simple)

    get hellas, ya know u want em....look how good that blue goes with gold!^

    now look at that pic again and think how those beautiful things sound! ^

    i dont know anyone going to WBM...soooo i can checkout shipping charges to moose country if u want so just pm me

    Cheapest? All Hellas are red by default. The only place that sells them in other colors is subimods. Do a clear coat when you finish painting. I didn't & mine are now chipping. Plus if you're not sure what color you like, you can always plasti dip.
