Talking about a photoshoot, does anyone know a gun photographer?

I was thinking of setting up a photoshoot with a model like I had done in the past:






And a few rolling rig shots also..

Would you guys be keen?

I'm up for this if you don't mind me coming along. Midweek would definitely be better than the Friday if possible.

Don't think you will have any chance at Olympic Park as the Royal Easter Show is on! But Mid-week is fine with me depending on the time we are having this meet.

The 1st time you plant it at the traffic lights you near shit yourself, the car becomes a total monster in comparison to oem

MSM @ Chatswood seems a good idea.. next door to Westfield and plenty of parking.

Ha, now that you are off the RFTs u can probably stop being a grannie now.

BTW now that you have a new rim, how does it feel having 1 spanking new rim that has no gutter rash, while the other 3 have 'pretty bad' gutter rashes?

Granted.. but added g-forces on the wheels, higher speeds, occasional bit of debris... to me it's the last place I want a wheel to crack... if a wheel cracks on the 'road' and it all goes pear shaped well at least you've got insurance
