I like the idea of that book, and I have a copy. However, I'm pretty disappointed at the level of the photography and/or the reproductions of the images. I find many of them very grainy and the colours are overblown. Detail (like grain in the tops) ends up being lost.

Wow I just spent the first hour of my Saturday morning reading through this thread and drooling all over myself. I guess I should get to work the machines are calling, cycle start buttons are blinking and I'm ready.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to my morning laziness I'll pay the price and get home late today.

It was worth it, Great thread, great reading.

My '17 R8/CC29v has some unique figuring. She is the "ugly duckling" of that run of repurposed CCs. Definitely a prime example of a mismatched flitch top. The upper part of the body has a big knot and change in grain. At certain angles it looks like the sprayer was checking his phone, but if you look at it the other way, it looks fine.

That top looks more like a real vintage 59 burst!!!
