From Mr. Dirk...


Hi Paul,

Doesn't this look like a mat? The first one I got from Dale was this color. Don't know the story behind the photo, just noticed while browsing.

Best,

Dirk

Such a big rail spray I'd say a hard edge but whuddooeyeno?

It seems like there are two "pontoon grooves" if you look at the full size picture (click on image.)

GRAYMAN said...

You're right. Links like a 3 pontoon mat. Could it be the Orange prototype Standard?

PG said...

Possibly, although both orange prototype mats I made a few years ago went to Australia, and the photo is pretty clearly not Australia...

Looks VERY cool, I think.

Hmmmm... Still a bit yellow I think. That mat seems to be proper orange in the shot.

We probably should just ask the source! : ) Anyway, it originally caught my eye because I had a couple of very yellow Neumatics back in '01. The only picture that I could find right now is this one, taken in '04:
