Well it took three weeks to arrive after getting lost between various couriers :roll: and me pulling my hair out thinking I was being scammed :? but its finally here :)

Spent the last couple of hours stripping it down and giving it what looks like the only clean its ever had :shock: and very nice it looks to :)

Now the fun bit really looking forward to building this up :) just hope the Kilauea I've just bought is as nice and shiny after a clean :)

This is the only pic I saw before it arrived so wasn't really sure what it would be like :?

I've got exactly that frame, 97 size 16, but yours is in really good condition I must say. The metallic paint on the mid-price Lava Dome is a much higher quality than the plain paint on my twice-as-expensive 97 Kilauea, which looks quite dull in comparison. Maybe I should be brave enough to t-cut the Kilauea, but whatever, the metallic paint is just far better.
