    Hard to tell from the picture but I think RAL6011 is a yellow-green so the yellow buttons are closer in hue. The green buttons are more a blue-flavoured green so don't match as well.

    on Yellow :D

    I have just asked my Weegie pal which colour was best, he showed it to his pal and his reply was that as much as it pains them, they both think Green was the best. Lots of people won't realise the significance of their pain but believe me it must have hurt :D

    Ha ha a few years back I persuaded him to paint his Mill in Reseda Green, as I said blue looked terrible on machines, eventually he relented and got some paint from me and he sent a pic saying he was very happy with how it turned out even though it was green, I did a quick photoshop of his pic, put some white stripes and a pic on Neil Lennons face on the side and sent it back. The language in the reply was not family friendly :D

    Well so far all that have seen it in real life have said yellow but a few have commented that different colours looks better.
    I have just robbed a blue lens from the plasma and I am not sure.
    I am wondering if for example I had the first 3 in Yellow, the next 2 in green and the last 2 in blue, it may look better than all one colour.

    I have taken a pic showing the 4 different colours but I think yellow green and blue are fine but red I am not sure about.

    Ha ha I know but I like things to look correct so that once they are plastered in black oily fingerprints I can recall the days when it looked new :D

    Well I tried different colours and didn't like it so put it to all green and it looked ok apart from the inserts are just printed with the inkjet I have here and are not so sharp and crisp as with the laser at home.

    So yellow

    Try orange, purple, blue, loads of other colours to try before you decide.
    Haven’t you got much work on at the moment :)
