Between myself and the body shop... over 4 hours of prep on these to make them look nice! I was a little bit disappointed to say the least! Over 6 hours of body shop labor to prep my Sinister bags so far... and they are not done yet... now granted I want them perfect as I'm painting them black but DAMN!!! The Milwaukee Baggers stuff I had before was a lot better quality as far as prep work goes... I just like the Sinister style better. According to John Shopes Facebook post... they are going to start producing all of their parts in "injection molded Fiberglass" very soon which should eliminate a lot of the problems that I have had with their parts.
I just got my Bad Dad stretched side covers. They aren't going to take much prep at all and fit perfect out of the box. I have Bad dad stretched bags also, so that could be why they lined up just right. So far, I am very impressed with all my bad dad stuff.
