Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Looks really sharp!!! I am curious about where you plan on putting your fill for the fuel, I will probably order the same tank as you. And what stain did you use on your cover boards looks like its going to turn out nice!!
