Meet "Valkyrie"

Yes she has a name "Valkyrie"
This is where I'm at today. Send out for title last week, so now the wait is on for the government!
Still a few details to do but I would call her substantially complete.

John-

She looks awesome! That all black just looks so sinister, and the red stripes and spinners offer just a hint of meanness.

Well done!

Regards,

Steve

Looking good John! Sinister for sure

Is the difference between the ones you just posted and the one that's your profile picture ambient light? It seems there's a difference in 'depth' with the shine between the two.

Yes the picture in my avatar was inside the painters garage with the lights on it.
Itís a matt finish for the car with shiny black stripes that donít really pop as much in these pics. Kinda funny because you also donít see the number meat balls on the door or the cove either in this light.

Thanks Jim, probably stay close to home for the initial period to make sure there are no gremlins and then it will be winter

Congratulations John! Looks great! I trust a look back at the journey is all (mostly) positive. Hope you get a few miles in before the snow flies.

Marc,

It sure was, although a bit longer then originally anticipated, it will be great to get behind the wheel and log some miles!
