    Hi Everyone

    By now you should have an awareness to a ocau members little boy
    Alexander (Xander/Panda)

    http://pandasear.org.au/
    This build is about helping raise some $$$$$$ to help him & his family out
    Another way to think of it is for the Donation price of a cup of coffee or a beer
    You can help the family reach their goal


    Rewind back to early November 2014,

    I asked OCAU Owner (Agg) & Site manager (Ma Baker) if I could do a build that could be sold/ auctioned off & the proceeds given to a good cause as they see fit
    Got approval & the process begun
    14 days from start of concept to handing over a set of pics

    That's good news Mic, And I'm happy to say the case is coming along nicely. And looking very Stealth. Final touches being added this week. Then off to the paint booth for a Satin clear coat to protect it's new look. Then back to Mic, To build. That will be fun. :)

    Cheers,
    Zen.
