    Who makes the best stage 1?

    This fall I am going to purchase a level 1 kit and an OPAS block off. I have seen all the various kits available. Who do you guys feel makes the best kit? Same with the block off. Any suggestions?

    The Riva kit will get you the most bang for your buck.

    Richard (way2fast) here on this forum will give you the best price. He is a Riva dealer.

    My block off plates from Riva have been perfect and the finish is still the same as if I just bought them. Over 100 hours on my RXP so far

    I have 40 hours on mine and it seems a few weeks after I first put them on they faded, but I keep them nice and black with armor all

    Riva uses an anodize finish on the blocks. It will fade but it won't peel and corrode from underneath like powder coated or painted aluminum does. Armorall keeps them and everything else looking new and shiny.
