A darker orange?

Hey everybody,

I have a 1998 Bass Boat Orange Homegrown 17 inch frame.  I just received in the mail a 1998 13 inch frame for my wife also Bass Boat Orange (kind of).

The 13 inch frame is considerably darker. Its almost Copper in color.  Any ideas what caused this?

 

Thanks

Matt

That's normal. I've seen lots of BBO Homegrowns, and the paint varies wildly. I've seen very bright orange, all the way to super dark, almost red, like mine.

Maybe paint quality control was a little lacking, or maybe it was very tough to do the bass boat. Who knows. I don't think Orange is the only color that varies so much either.

I will indeed post picture when the sun comes out again and I can get a one of the two frames side by side.
