    Small poll on choosing the right color

    I received a new rubber grip from Nikon for my F3 body, so I'm now gonna order me a leatherette kit. My daughter chose two colors: yellow and pink.
    See these color examples:

    Since she couldn't choose between these colors, I would like to post a small poll. Which color do you think suits best my Nikon F3?
    Bare in mind that it is a black body with a black grip.

    I did a quick and dirty mock up in photoshop, the yellow was a little off as I just altered the hue from the pink. But this might be easier to choose with.

    I think both are nice, but I like the dark pink a bit more, it also probably wont show dirt as much as the yellow will.

    Thanks for the mock up, Newt!
    Nice to see what it might look like. You might be right about the dirt factor.
    I also like the Richard's name "Bumble bee F three".

    Well, so far 2 votes for yellow and 2 votes for pink ...

    Be warned, whatever you choose, she may want the matching purse.

    Or not - anyone who is young and likes an F3 is an independent thinker.

    Personally, I would vote for yrllow (of the two).

    Surprise,
    I was settling on the yellow kit, but eventually in the end my two daughters and my wife settled on the blue lizard kit:

    So I ordered the blue kit and some foam seals from http://aki-asahi.com/store/. It arrived today in Europe from Japan within 6 day:

    I'm going on holidays in August and will refurbish the camera then. There is a very good instruction on the site as well. I'll get some pure alcohol and rubber cement for the job shortly.

    To be continued ....
