Glad it's been sorted out, how does it look under the streetlights?
Did you ever hear about the story of the Chevy Mako Shark? The designer, Bill Mitchell (?) had a model of the mako shark (fish) on his wall and asked his guys to paint the concept the same colour as his fish so they did! Only when they'd painted it Bill didn't like, brought the fish to the car and it was just wrong. Lighting in the office or something, he told them to paint it again. And again and again and again until he was happy with it. After half a dozen attempts he was getting as p****d off with his paint guys as they were with him and he threatened them with the sack if they didn't get it right.
So that weekend the past guys snuck into his office, stole the fish, painted it and put it back. Bill was happy apparently and everyone kept their jobs.
