Dear God, NO!!! THE POOR INNOCENT FUSE!!! THE HORROR

I'm not sure I trust you two with power tools and glue that late at night, not counting the ELECTRICITY Is that why your hair always stands on end??? And I love how the angry smiley in that pic has a goatee and spikes, gee who was THAT meant to represent??? :P Then again, it'd be a lil hard to create a smiley with a moustache, goatee, and a ponytail...

Looks AWESOME...white though...you added more curse to your car Not to mention more NEON I think I can see it from my front yard
