    Thanks guys starting to think i was ripped off really bad!! panic over the paintwork i will have to live with i guess the problems with ebay and buying from the states.You can actually see patches of textured paint finish under this more modern paint finish.

    Nice One, but I don't mean to boast, but I was fortunate enough to get mine for a whopping AU$80 from a former work mate This was before the internet educated the masses
