    Re: Almost legal

    Be careful having people, even if they are small people, sitting on the back deck - it isn't designed for it and isn't strong enough to take the weight!

    Re: Bugeye Color Samples

    Unless that's a bad photo, it isn't Primrose Yellow YL04 it's the later YL12 used on MK3? Mk4? Sprites. This is Primrose.

    Also, this is Cherry red. That looks like the later Tartan? red.
