Gavin wishes to pass on his thanks with the good job on the finished look of our 2nd 3rd and 4th small engine Dyno made here at Currawong. It looks so much better than our raw ally prototype.
This one is set for the small engine Engineering world show in Taiwan which have the likes of Honda and Yamaha very interested.
Hopefully this and the two others are just the beginning of many more sales which will result in lots more Anodising.
The pic contains no ITAR products so you can do what you want with it.
Please pass on my thanks.
