As part of her completer set for the K&B appliances, Michelle made custom copies of the Fire' Em Up by Sleek Sensations that match The Coldinator by Kitchensations. All I did was take the tweaked TXMT resources from those copies, point them back to the Maxis textures, and make them into replacements for the Maxis ones; all credit for the color-fix itself belongs to Michelle.

This affects the original Maxis colors of the Fire' Em Up stoves from Kitchen & Bath Stuff, so you will not need the black, white, orange, and yellow Fire' Em Up packages from Michelle's set. However, if you have placed her black, white, orange, or yellow Fire' Em Up stoves on any lots, be sure to replace them before removing those packages.

Kitchen & Bath Stuff is required for this to work.

The catalog screenshot shows the color-fixed Maxis stoves in their clean and dirty states, and shows the matching Coldinator fridges. The shot below shows both the original Maxis colors and the replacement colors. (Thanks for the screenshots, Michelle!)





Additional Credits:
Maxis, for the original object.

Michelle for the color fix and the screenshots.
