Yeah - $5 for the wrong color
And after all, they're all pink on the inside
But you made an interesting point - very few do care if the color matches, so why should the manufacturers? And if they don't care, well pink is pink matching or not.
I like the idea of restoring the original integrity of NOS parts to an older model, but what I find in many cases is "what WAS the original color?"
So on the FP I have, this is what they intended (I guess) and how it came off the line.
Like when I asked what the original knob color was on a VSK? I don't recall ever seeing a catalogue shot of one, only used & faded shots.
I when democratic and let the pictures vote - neon yellow was the majority, so yellow it is!
Now if I could just find a decent pair of 'em
Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm an idiot about this crap, but I can't help it.
