Hi,

Awright! For that price, I'll crank up a CNC fabricator and make these out of Titanium if you want! :P

Later!

I was going to say, for that price you could make a copy that looks just like the original and nobody would know the difference....for that kind of money I'd want a car, not a lens hood.
