    Real nice looking rig. I've never seen an insulated welder cover before, but at least I don't have to ask if it ever gets cold out your way!

              Hey good looking rig, if they could stay nice and shiney like that forever EH!
              I tryed for a long time to keep my boxes clean like that but man it was alot of work. So now I leave it until spring and get them to polish the doors. I think I pay good $$ to the guy who does it, but it looks good when he's done I'll bet it would cost alot to do your whole back part, I wonder if a guy could spray some kind of chemical on them to keep them like that I'll
              bet the boys down south have some kind of stuff they use, do tell if you do.

                  Let me know if you guys need a full insulated cover for a Vantage 300/400, Ranger 305G, Classic 1, or 3 series.

                  Ours are embroidered, and way $$$ cheaper than you can get them custom made as we order in bulk

                      Looks virtually identical to the one pictured for the classics, except for the cutout for the exciter housing. And embroidered "Classic" on both sides.

                      If your in Edmonton, just go to my shop at 9336 60 Ave

                          We also have a branch office in LLoydminster as well as Edmonton.

                          We didn't have the Classic 2 covers made, the Classic 1 & 3 covers have full rad doors and if you have a kubota engine with the speed knob, we've made provisions for that as well.

                          The Vantage and Ranger covers fit well though must be installed in a warm area as we made these to form fit the machines.

                          All are nicely embroidered

                            I just had to say, I do alot of work with alu. highway tanks and the only guy's who love shiny more than welders is truckers. The company has spent alot of time & $$$ on chemicals that first off, just don't work and second, have ruined some very slick finishes even when all the precautions are followed. So far, some elbow grease and alu. rim polish has worked the best for me.

                              i use brightener on aluminum on my rig, but its a different kind of finish, makes it look not shiny like, but clean light grey dull like, almost white, looks good to me, but I know a lot of guys like to be bliunded by there shiny aluminum, so its not for every guy, but it sure is eacy to keep clean, you wont find me wasting my time off rubbing metal, i got other things i'd rather to do involving wifey than truck.
