Cheers for that bob, I wont be ready for the wheels until middle of january but i will keep the number and give them a ring nearer the time...I couldnt make ryhope this year due to work commitments, (4 on and 4 off) I did get to washington early show with the roma, im hoping to have the ha roma and ha pick up at both shows next year...

I went to Washington show in May, don't recall seeing any HA Roma there. Just checked my pictures, I must have left before you got there.
See you in May, at Washington.
