Wow, looks excellent to see it in the beginning stages! We still have the rights to the exclusive rollpan article, eh?
I photochopped the rollpan to be black, and the only qualm I have with it is that it just might be a little to tall in height. I understand everything behind your reasonings for designing it this way, but who knows. We'll certainly see the finished product when it's done and I'm sure it will be much better than a photochop.
Anyway, I give you a lot of props for going out and doing this. Keep us posted for sure, and definitely mention prices over here as soon as you got an estimate.
