Got a thing about nice dropouts. Guessing those are original stainless custom from Paragon Machine Works. Apparently these are difficult to repaint, cant see why. Originality is important with these though.

Wow! That's the nicest build I've seen in a while, choice components for sure.
Look forward to seeing it as it goes forward.
Looking brilliant so far.

Loving the creativity and attention to detail in this build. Definitely not the usual clone 10th Anni 8) Would prefer to see SCs in 3DV though ;)
