I like playing with different dropout treatments and these PMW low mount dropouts can lend to a few options. Here is my general process for getting them to sit nicely in the stays. The two bikes I am currently building use them, one QR the other TA. My first step is to cut the tab down a bit to fit into the chainstay, this allows me to better determine the angle I need to cut the chainstays at since you can't bend these dropouts without ruining the placement of the ISO tab. Once I have a confirmation of the slot angle I hacksaw the slots and finish with a file. The ends of the chainstays are then shaped depending on what aesthetic I am going for, the QR versions have slanted scallops, the TA will have the points following the curve of the dropouts.

It will take on both chrome and bead blasted finish, the final design is still taking shape but I too think sick!

I've kind of stopped commenting because there's only so many ways to say "wow, super nice", but I always appreciate seeing the new work.

This is another reminder that there are more great builders out there than the number of bikes I can own. While I can't get all the great bikes, I can get some of them and perhaps the cosmos will lead to one of Aaron's. These are really nice.

Man those dropouts are nice. I think I have a bit of a dropout obsession. It bugs me when they don't look aesthetically pleasing or well finished.

This looks beautiful. I have a SS frame & love it, but the polished bits are stunning. What are you planning to do with decals? Any thought of bead blasting them, when possible?
