Thanks for the clarification, Anthony - it was sold to me as a '94 17" model but the seller wasn't 100% sure, and since it fits me and I like the look I wasn't too concerned. Also, my tape measure is metric only and I can't remember my 2.54-times table by heart
I don't know whether the colour is USA specific but it certainly polished up well. There are a couple of chips that would benefit from a touch-up so I'll try to get round to that this summer. I have replacement decals courtesy of gil_m to go on once I've tarted the paint and then we're done.
Unless anyone comes up with some bright suggestion, of course ...
