    yea incidentally, i think the curving actually helps cooling slightly bcos it forces the airstream to brush against the fin surface more:afro:

    Well I've got mine sittin' in front of me now and mine looks even better than the one in the pic. Too bad I don't have a half decent webcam to take a pic. :(
    A real shame is that I don't shave as it's a pretty good mirror too. :D

    although i don't think that effects performance at all:afro:

    Yeah, I don't think it'd effect performance at all. And if you want it to be shiny again you can give it a polish with some brasso. ;)

    you finally got a pic of it....i dunno what to tell you ...i should get mine on tuesday..i'll let you know...and maybe have a pic of it. Meanwhile...i really don't think it should affect it in performance but it seems a bit more bent then Wiggo's pic. The thing is that it all looks uniform...its not like its just one or two fins curved and the other aren't, you know what i mean. Well anyways..i let you know by tuesday. Peace : peace2:
