Same general thing, but this one gets updated hardware and the larger brushes that go with it.  Can got drilled also, but black is so like "yesterday"...so I went with "French White".

Perfect example of vintage *style* the modern brush hardware looks right at home on the original endbell. Even better against that slick white paintjob :D

Looking good.

Thanks Paul!  Oh and, I don't think of this as "Vintage Style" as Steve Okeefe sees it (*and as do I).  I "think" it's more what they call a "resto-mod", because the can and end bell casting are vintage.  Actually, had I used Mura hoods, which I have in the past, that would have been all-vintage!

Either way, thanks for the encouragement Paul!
