Nice to see new life in an old friend.

story of my life non-conformist

But i didn`t intend on it being brazed it was done without me knowing
also didnt want a brazed in clamp or the slot reversed it was also done with out my knowledge

so when it`s painted next week it`ll probably come back flamin pink
