Just been sent a proof of the decals and they look like they're going to be really good. All standard, apart from the flames being white instead of red.

They'll hopefully be sent tonight, so I should be able to start building it at the weekend.

Cheers Josh, not seem them in the flesh yet but I'm pretty chuffed with the proof that's been sent through.

Will get some pics up once they're on the bike.

Decals arrived today...very, very happy with them. The quality is awesome. The only downside is that I need to get the none drive side one redone as the the picture used for the decals is from a later frame and Intense moved the cable guides slightly, so the notch in my decals to fit around the cable guide. My fault for not noticing it, so I'll place another order today.

In the meantime I'll extend the notch with a Stanley knife so I can get the bike up and running.

Need to order a 12mm conversion kit and an axle. Also need to get the BB, head tube and disc mounts faced and then I can get it built.

Here are some work in progress pics.

Despite the slightly poor finish due the heavy shot blasting, I'm pretty damn pleased with how it's turned out so far.

That's looking great, the decals for the M1 I'm building came last week they're really good as well.
