That should be about right.  They have confirmed that they will polish mine and pass it on to you.

I can tell you that I won't be massively disappointed. After the initial joy faded, I realised just how much this whole thing is costing me  :o :o

No worries, I'm sure they'll offer great discount as well after having to deal with such a difficult and impatient customer  ;)

No good news I'm afraid, they haven't started the build yet  ::) Apparently the build kit needs to get sprayed before attaching brackets etc.
I asked if I could take a photo of the kit but it was declined saying they'd prefer not.
Byt vas bru, it'll happen... eventually  :thumleft:
