Looking good Josh!
Whatever you do with them, they'll be great!

I never understood why T-bars didn't match the angle of the body, respectively front and rear. As well a as the tips should be parallel to the bracket. Maybe it's my OCD kicking in, idk.

Every set I've had built I made sure they were that way. Looks so much better.

I thought about angling the ends to match the 30* angle.......I don't think it would work? Would give the illusion that they even bigger :-k I'm gonna re shape the leading and trailing edges and call it done it think
