my first alu DBR courtesy of the 'bay. after a quick polish and a raid of the parts bin here's the result.....

I'm quite pleased, took it for a quick blast on the weekend and it rides rather well. :)

Thanks Amey', now it just needs some suitable decals....I've got Gil_m on the job....and then given a final proper polish it will be finished.

sorry for hijack. Like the Vertex mate - have to give taht one a try soon.

Got the TT - when i say polishing I don't mean anything industrial. Just prepping for the build and a quick check on parts needed..

Amey' - i see how that comment could have been construed. Apologies!
