I believe we're going to have to modify our reference to a "pink slip".
The new version of the airworthiness certificates is more of a Peach color.

I was asked at one of my talks why the FAA changed the color. My answer was that "The old pink certificates always fade with time. The new ones come pre-faded!"

Congrats on the inspection! The skyview screens really stand out with that panel color. I love the snoopy (Joe Cool) decal.
