read the FAQ buddy!!

"Why is it called "Knauberize"?
It is named after the first CEGer to remove his door ding guards - Robert Knauber of the Capitol CEG."

The flat ones look like crap. The rounded ones look better.

My E1 has the rounded ones (and thats why they are still on), but maybe that is because it is the earliest of the E1s (98.5).
