well i finally finished customising the la marzocco gs3.
Moved away from timber and had some custom billet aluminium pieces made for it.

The coffee machinist machined the side panels and were anodised in electric blue, and specht design made the new group cap, but i didnt like the look of the flat standard ones, so had it made to look like the strada AV group caps.

Portafilter handles are from pesado.

The only other thing i would like to do is change the feet to some taller S/S ones

This one will now be a keeper, as cant see myself wanting or ever needing to upgrade for a long while

cheers guys, am very happy with the results ad the machine is an absolute pleasure to use, and produces a great cup.

My other thought was if it would be possible to incorporate the shot buttons, onto the group head like the strada has, though am thinking the cost and mods involved wouldnt warrant such a mod
