Well thanks guys, what an instant reaction! Yes Colby I didn't know whether to do the surround in chrome tape/BMF or not.

Yeah, I like it more and more as I look at it...normally it's done in wood trim, but this looks so much more "hot rod" and bada**!

That's right Colby, definitely more 'hot rod'.

Looks like a real fun build. This kit offers so many different ways to build. I would never have thought of the "metal" wood trim.

Thanks Bob, I wish that most trendy surf style kits offered the surfing and holiday destination window decals, they make all the difference. Silly me should have scanned them before using, and print some more.

Yes I copied another board that I had made in plaster and just used nice thick plasticard and some home printed hella flush type decals.

I've now started on the Surfite/Ticki kit and when built will be suitably modified, colour, decal and wheel/tyre wise and possibly with a trailer and extra  sufboards!
