Default Rod tye colors

Well
after a few months messing around with the dyes i think ihave managed to replicate Rod Tyes fiery brown and chocolate shades.
It has been an expensive programe with over 8 saddles wasted in the process but well worth the effort and frustration.
Now to start to get a few of each dyed up this week for the web site and the shows
