Have a good day.

Hello Erik Thank you for the reply It was my pleasure to participate
I have never heard before, that the better shells were used for the BP
What I have always heard was the thing about the citrus mod being not so very popular hence they covered them up with black panther
I mistakenly had mod orange lumped in with that same story
