Finally finished it today. The front mech needs a little adjusting and the forks need a bit of air but other than that it is done.
I owe thanks to a few people on here for giving me advice on modern bits that I don't know much about and also thanks to Josh for facing the headtube, BB etc after painting.
I've kept track of the costs of the build from frame to respray and decals, right down to the last nut and bolt including all postage costs incurred. Every single component was purchased for the build, nothing from the parts bin, and the cost comes out at just over £1,100 which I think isn't too bad considering the price of a new Implant frame today. Here's the full spec:
Frame: 2004 Dekerf Implant resprayed black with gold flake

If things go to plan then I'll get some first ride pics up tomorrow evening.
