    I'm in for a natural kepheart, but could you skip the white liner? natural on natural on maybe throw in an orange liner. I know I suck, I'm making things hard. What I want is natural, orange, natural. What I'll gladly be very happy with is anything that is natural in the kepheart shape and if you tell me to please kindly read the instructions above, then I'm cool with that too... Obviously there would be a slight upcharge for the pain associated with the special tracking and material costs associated with this special request. Oh, and could you maybe give it a bit of a swedge, and knock the guard down a little bit?
