Bird looks great and nice to see a hood on a hh I always make mine to the hood, now wait for the debate
Got to agree with Shaun, great to see a Harris made to the hood, it's something we just don't see enough of. Atb. John

Not sure about that. I use red sand and i know for a fact that it's not dyed - its as its dug out of the ground

I used to work in a sand plant and our local builders red and yellow sand is definitely silver sand dyed. I expect it depends on your locality, I have no doubt that you can get natural red sand but depends on the area.
