Hi Beamhead, Thanks. The finish on the PD is chrome. I quite like it and it is pretty durable, as well. I think that there are a few kicking around out there. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/naughty.gif If you don't have one yet, you should get your hands on a PD. They're great lights. I think my next one will be a TYOJ HA-Nat PD. Presuming I can get some cash together. I also need to get my hands on an original Mclux.
