Got the color swatches. Oak is a pretty good match. Just a touch light, but it is close enough. Now to decide which parts I want perforated.

I been thinking about getting one forever with the 2 tone black/white or grey/white. How much of a pain in the arse was it to install?

Not too difficult. The same simple stitch over and over. Just gotta watch for where the perforated parts line up with the spokes and that you skip the same amount of holes in the back when you dummy stitch the front.

Looks good.
I'll have to keep that in mind for the summer to try to combat the heat.
