if you do get really stuck with the decals, let me know and ill see if i can find the time to sort them out for you......


decals.......god, to start with, i thought that would be easy, there are a lot of people selling kona decals, but i couldnt find anyone, who had the tbg sets on file, someone said theres a guy on here thats called gil i think, and he does them,...£40 a set....?????...., but i couldnt find this guy, in the end i did them my self, a real pain to do mind, took hours......but they are 100% accurate.

Pic of me appling the clearcoat....
