It's done and ready...


After a countless emails and a few late nights my first build is complete. I must say I am more than happy with the end result. For starting out with a low key simple build in mind I managed to bling it up a little for the final product. Not too flashy but I think it has a nice clean classy look to it. Learned a tonne on this build that will be put to good use in the future. Had a lot of input from good friends and I thank them for that! I Look forward to putting her through the paces in the coming weeks. Now I just hope she doesn't blow up on the first hot chromer.

Later.

Thanks Gene,
It sure looks good. CAn't wait to see how it runs. I have noticed you have taken strongly to yours and if it can handle the abuse you put on it then it must be on the edge of bullet proof.

Tues/Wed the week of April 7th sounds like a plan. There should be quite a few options by then.

Nice touches Bryan. Only thing that would better then the Slate IS, would be a Pweter PS ;-)

Thanks Steve,
Good to hear from ya. I agree the Pweter PS were very handsome reels indeed! However, I must admit that Islander have a winner with the smoke grey IS IMHO.
How many of the Pweter do you got...5? ;0) LOL!!!

SD said...
