Is that a tiny dog or a giant piston? He looks comfortable curled up around it though.

well the picture throws it off , my dog joe ...being a greyhound he is big but cant go by that pic


this picture reminds me of when guys go fishing for large mouth bass and they take picture of a 12 inch fish in front of them so the picture looks like a 2 ft long fish lol


pistons look nice ....wasnt sure but the quality i can see of the icon pistons are pretty nice

That's the guy I was thinking of. He makes doors as well. How's the fit. Someone said the hood was a bit short on the back but would get fixed next time he made more. I'm getting one for my Futura.
