Loving it :lol:

Thanks for the consent. :lol:

Thinking bout getting the drop outs painted, as I said. But I see no way of painting the whole frame - though it would be really necessary. Already talked to some painters, no perfect match of color possible. Not to speak of the decals...
Sorry, gump, but the red-green-thing's too fcuking awesome. Image

The sticker's made by a guy called Horst Link - ever heard of Horst Rings?


Gil_M can make you up some matching decals.
