It'd be awesome to get some Rockstars on there..
If I could find a pair of good condition or NOS Marin Rockstars, I'd be a very happy bloke!

The finish does look really nice - BUT - in the pic where you are applying the decal the colour looks perfect but in the other pics it looks like too light a grey. Is this just a camera flash/lighting thing? I assume it is as you've obviously been through a lot of trouble getting it right.
Precisely... the colour looks very different from one picture to the next, mainly due to the varying light conditions. I even found that the colour looks totally different from one PC screen to the next, which made life very difficult when trying to search for the right colour, with my mate over the phone. In the end, I looked at pictures of the bike before it was stripped, and compared it on the same PC to the RAL Telegrey2 pantone and found the closest match.
Under natural light, the white balance changes and makes the grey look a bit darker and a touch bluer. The orange looks more orange and less red, also.
