It is sweet. Pro tip: Sounds crazy, but dry-erase markers work great for restoring the colors. The blue barely fades but that red oxidizes hard and turns pink. 10-15 minute spaced apart treatments with a fresh red marker will bring back the red to what it was and seems to stay intact pretty darn well. It's the leather washers inside that are damn tough to find a replacement for!

I have a whole bag full of different colored 6" pump extensions I need to do something with soon.
