Thank you, always good to hear! I'm always a little surprised at how few summit whites have silver stripes, but I instantly loved the combination. I like your combination as well

There was an entire day of posts from Camaro 5 lost last week - they had to reboot the forum to a state one day earlier when an issue cropped up, and so an entire day of posts were gone as though they never existed!

I'd just updated my build thread with all my new items too haha - took me an hour! Oh well - I'll do it again next weekend!
