you stated that you are new to the WW experience but IMO, you are doing great. Most importantly, you dont sound arrogant like some others. The way you write is straight to the point and easy to understand. Your attitude is all about "fun and game", which makes idiots like me really enjoy reading/seeing your posts.
Thanks so much for your comments, it is nice to know people like my work, however minuscule in comparison to some of the big name tuners on here (Berk, weeracerweenie, wally318, to name a small few i have read recently). I have always tried to source light parts but i am new to the physical tuning side of life (buying a SR RD and on the same day attack it with razors and sandpaper was completely alien to me and my heart was in my mouth for the first few components). I think the more you read of others who really stretch the boundaries (weeracerweenie is a favourite of mine) it makes starting off with the smaller things far easier and has given me the confidence to do more than i would have otherwise - So thanks to those guys.
Just a thought--you mentioned the frame you getting is matte black. What about getting a white (or any other colors) and sand it down...you will then have a matte white frame. It would be cool to see a matte orange, matte red, matte green...I can imagine keeping a matte colored frame clean would be difficult..but it would look cool with the matte-black parts that you just finished building. Again, thank you for your post, I really enjoyed it.
The Chinese frame i am getting is a MC053 Scott Foil copy. It is in gloss clear coat plain 3k carbon weave, so i will sand the whole thing to a matte finish. Others have suggested a white frame, but i really like your idea of sanding the clear coat to make a white matte frame (I think you are right about trying to keep that one clean! - lots of aerospace 303 me thinks!) I will certainly give it some thought and do a couple of photoshop mock-ups when this one is built.
