May I suggest, for a discerning gentleman like yourself with unquestionable good taste and an eye for fashion, that blue as a base colour makes perfect sense. Ignore the few nay sayers on the forum and join those at the cutting edge of design. Yay blue!

Well, we all like to keep in touch, because when we want to sell a Firestorm, the first place we advertise it is on a forum where everyone already has one.

Those helpful people are your next buyers!
