I'll second green, there are some rather pleasent green self-extracting bolts on my M900 cranks. A light green though, not too dark.

That said, at least I'm not flying back and forth from America anymore - now that was fun, even with a valid visa!


It was fine for me pre Sept 11. I have a UK and US passport, out on one back on the other. Not allowed to do that anymore... Bummer. :(

Now I have to use my US to travel to the US. Last time I came back the dude at Heathrow asked me "How long are you staying Mr. Dixon?" Anyone who has ever met me will attest to my public school accent! :roll:

I told him 2 weeks, (until I next went back to sea) that was a year ago, have been to and from Holland countless times since on my UK passport. Makes the whole thing a joke. Either that or MI.5 are currently staking out my house! :lol:

Oh! Gold, unless you can get silver anodised bolts.

As for Airports, Passports and Visas.. Flew into Sydney for the tenth time at the weekend.. Relatively painless this time, but ordinarily you're Guilty* until proven Innocent**.

What really worries me about the US is they've now got my retina scan, fingerprints and probably DNA sample somewhere, problem being I left the US after living out there for a year in a bit of a hurry having not done my tax return and I owe my old employers out there $22,000 (long story). I worry that if I go back there it'll be Guantanamo Bay for me!
