    Theese two will be fully engraved with Art Deco inspiered designs to make a matching 800Deco pair :)

    Oh I shall be following this intently!

    I'd love to get a solid sidepanel for my 800D, but the only place I can get it from is the States and shipping is 3 times the cost of the panel :(

    I don't know how you do it. I'd have skips all over that panel by now.
