Finally nice to have had a decent nights sleep.

Here are some of the specifications: 'the cases, to be painted Matt Black, I know you didn't ask for this but I think they will look much better, we can also cut some stencils, to have the Illusion name on each box. Swivelled rubber castors and clips are included, but no handles, metal chest handles are optional. We can also supply corner brackets to protect the corners from damage.'
Alex said after the successful conclusion of the packaging: ' I just want to say a massive thank you to you and your team in getting the cases made. They were fun getting them into the van as they are big, but they will do the job nicely
The freight company comes to pick up the illusions in there cases on Friday and the next time I hope to see them is on the ship so fingers crossed.'
