looking good.

as for the decal, get it on. its not original paint and custom decals anyway so i dont think it will matter (that's not to diss the build by the way)

I must admit, I agree. So much work has gone into this, don't rush it and spoil it with a small detail ;)

Agreed.

I feel sorry for Rojo, watching this slowly develop must be a massive tease!

I've had Bob Jacksons do quicker paint jobs :P :lol:

looking forward to the build, and good work so far, although I still fear for the robustness of the finish.

I've got a Bear Valley frame that Rob kindly karma'd me. I think he tried to respray that... and it flakes if you look at it :D :D :D

Think that probably made his mind up to stick to anodised Paces (Lots of :D :D :D )

I think the Sex One will be just fine...

Gotta find that sticker mate!
