Gen x starter xl kit

First it the box I had on a single piece of angle what looked like I drag mark but I'm not too picking so I just cleaned it up and used it anyways. The tbnation fb group admins assured me some "goodies" on my next purchase so really no complaints. The customer service was excellent and they helped me get the right kit. I almost just got the starter and I would have ran out of material. Thank u tbnation for ur awesome product and support
