Decided to try white wires to go with the white diff, pulleys and springs on the 417X. Quite like it.

You can have the anodize stripped off and then redone in a variety of colors including green. It should be to hard to find an anodizing company near you. Here are the common colors available.

What was that about a winner ?
Now maybe not the best choice of electronics but the
"MADE IN THE USA" Cubed and all that superlative cable dressing.
EXQUISITE my good man !

Once again the CF Stealth is a beautiful alternative.
I will have to try out the camera tomorrow afternoon.
