and last but certainly not least my good friend Bas (Defiant) for putting up with my unrelenting pestering to sell me the frame in the first place. Cheers buddy, hope you like it.

I do Simon,..it looks gorgeous.
If i would have repainted the Defiant i would have redone it in black but that is the result of my own artistic limitations, the green looks classic,..just so damn nice!
The Onza's in black,..the white cables,..you got spot on with the details

Yes I did the paint. Oven/ booth goes in next week but I am sooooo busy at the moment so won't be taking anything on for a while.
