A post or two ago, I posted a pic up of the belts that Steve and Barb brought back from Hong Kong for me (thanks guys!) and the reason I asked them to get it for me was to hold my air tank down in the trunk. It was an idea we came up with at the Jackie’s shop when we were all there figuring out the layout of how it should look and also because the tank came with no legs to bolt down.
Anyways – I finally got around to doing it over the last two days. Watch the magic.
*DISCLAIMER: These are not real. I don’t intend to pass them off as real. So don’t be dumb. Thank you.
The back. And how the “Vuitton” is crooked. Quality control at its finest haha. Even the three little screws holding it to the leather was so cheap. One of them was already stripped so I had to drill it out.
As I was sanding them down to scuff them a bit, I noticed something funny when I got to the second one. If you look closely, the left buckle is made out of copper. The right one is made out of stainless steel. Both of them were plated with some fake gold… But I thought it was funny how they were both made out of different materials. They’re also differently weighed LOL.
Steve mentioned he bought the longest ones just incase – I think they were a size 46 LOL. I had to cut off about a foot of it in order for it to fit nicely. Who cuts Louis Vuitton belts? This guy. LOL
All in all – good enough for the trunk and it looks good. I just wanted it to look a little nicer in the back for when I open it up for shows or something. Thanks again to Steve and Barb for going out of their way during their trip to pick these bad boys up for me!
