You would think so wouldn't you. In fact 3 directed me to Argos, one didn't even know what JIS was. :lol:

I dont want to pay Argos prices for fancy paintjobs!


I know what you mean, this paint job is a big extravagance. I always intended to do everything on a budget but the paint really has been worth it.

I have been more restrained with everything else (believe me I wish I could go out and put Paul's this and that on it. . . .maybe one day!)

That's looking a bit good.

I'm getting that Overbury's twitch at the moment. The twitch that makes my bank balance quiver.

Gorgeous!! That paint is fantastic!
Only thing I'm not sure on are the purple bits. Would look loads better with those being black or green, in my humble opinion :wink:
