Default Titan skids

Here's the new skids I've made for my 6hp.
A collector has given all measurements and I tried to go on the original.
I've extra engraved channels.

lettering is painted and I finish it with many coats of linseed oil.
I also can't wait to see the engine on it but there's a lot of work ....
