Aye lad! But your beading is a bit loose.

You want to get another coat of wax on there.

Opinions divided like my white wheels

The repeaters should be changed IMHO - would look 'stealthy' if you got the dark ones

Oooo.. I dunno. I think those beads still look a bit loose. That's a week old finish, innit?

Where's a decent Poorboys Natty Blue Wax bead-photo when you needs one..?
