Has anyone actually purchased the IC-7200 in any of the colors offered ? I'd like to know if the optional paint jobs are as high quality as the factory paint job. The factory paint seems quite rugged and might be a baked on type of finish. The camo etc are dipped but nothing is said about the durability . If it chips and scratches or blemishes easily, it would be a shame. Obviously, the color does nothing to add ruggedness to the rig. I would buy it because to me it is just fun. And that is what ham radio is to me personally. Just another past time I have fun with . It's like buying extras for my motorcycles. They don't all have a major improvement on performance. But they allow me to personalize my bike and tailor it to my liking. I'm doing it for me and me only. Not to impress others. At my age and condition, being cool is out of the question anyway !
Just my take on the subject.
