57 Thanks Say Thanks
This is a CEP-Extra for the Longbranch Side Gate, allowing the metal hardware to be recolourable. This also recolours the 2-tile, Longbranch Front Gate, as it is slaved to the Side Gate.

We also have 18 Colorbond and 5 MALM recolours of the Base Game Longbranch Side-Gate and the Pinegultcher Wood Rail Fence. There are four recolors of the metal included: Old Brass, Pewter, Rust and Verdigris, in a separate file. In addition, three Maxis' missing fence colours to match the original gates, included in a separate file. As a bonus we have added an invisible gate and fence recolour.
