I should hopefully have the bike built up by the end of march, All that I'm waiting for is for my groupset to arrive from paint. New decals on the frame.

HKS camo from the HKS Nissan R32 race car, I'm testing them out to see how they look but I might go a different route.

At some point I might be interested in one of these two. A bit more muted tho.
And I'd also need something for the top tube.
You cut them yourself ?

Update,
Picked up a berk Lupina short nose saddle always wanted to try one of these out I'm use to 3d printed saddles but since the fizik 00 Adaptive saddle I use is on back order a close friend of mine sold me his new in box lupina. I'm still waiting for the paint shop to finish my custom painted groupo and finishing kit I was told it would be ready at the end of month. Here's a few pics of the saddle and weight.

Sorry for the lack of updates,

The bike is almost ready to build, I will weigh the parts before building and compare the differences. My painter sent me a picture of the Parts clear coated and the painted RD.
