LH... it looks awesome. I'm normally not a fan of new decals on old frames... but this works. Cant wait to see the build.

:D

That's all good and well, but we will have to see what Kev thinks. :wink:

I picked it up from Spectrum after work yesterday. Put it back together and had these old decals laying around. Decided, what the heck. And, it seemed to kinda work. Wait' till you see the fork... :shock:

when did I become the authority on Yetis? :D

Nice refinish - my favourite ARC colour scheme although not seen an ARC-AS like that. Cool, I alway said it takes balls to be different with retro builds. Have to agree that the modern decals work really well.

Shame about the picture backdrop though. Can't you photoshop the frame onto something more picturesque :lol:
