DUI checkpoints have, unfortunately, been upheld by the Supreme Court so that's not a violation of our legal rights, despite what I may think.

Paint each half a different color, then weld them together very poorly and leave the bead unpainted. Sell them to a hipster with a VW with plaid interior and a fake-rust hood for $$$$.
