i see what you mean. they are not exactly the same on mine either. but VERY close. close enough that i would call it matchy before i would call it no match but same color.

The colours are (for once!) moderately accurate on my screen (I only have cheapo Spyder3Express colour calibration though).

Not entirely sure what impact the above clarification has on the collective taste-o-meter, but those are the colours. wink.gif

i still think the rig loks nice. smile.gif

That's quite nice, Manton.

Agreed.

Manton and several others have posted a number of fits which really are on point with the theme of this thread. Is there some way to capture these so that we have a sort of HOF within the thread? Just a thought.

I get your point, stich. I have saved a number of issues, but I would also argue that a public version could be educational.
