the colour on the Victor
compared with the new powder-coat on the Sport.
not the same colour by a long shot.
when I looked at the swatch in the paint book
(which, strangely, was called "Flame Red", which is the same name as the factory original colour)
I knew it was right.
when the frame came back I knew it was wrong.
when I looked at the swatch again it still looked right.
when I held the frame next to the swatch they were definitely the same.
when I looked at the frame by itself it still looked wrong.
it's such a nice job
and I've waited so bloody long for it
(five months and still counting)I'm just going to live with it.
maybe time will darken it a tad...
