Looks ace, just one question, where has the screen frame gone ? Is it going to be a racer ?

Colour is Carmen Red, a very close match to the original colour found on the body, don't have a code. Could get it from the painter if you wish.

Screen and other black pieces are still to be painted.

Was thinking about Carmen Red for repaint of my S2... current colour
was Carnival Red , but now all stripped of.
I think I have the code for Carmen Red filed away somewhere.
carnival red was just a bit to much on the Orange side, would
prefer a deeper red... Carmen looks nice.

I'd be interested in seeing the brand/code for Carmen red.

Thanks,
