Im guessing thats dribble on the chassis just below the armboard , SMEs tend to make ya do that .
I know what you mean floyd droid, they really are things of beauty.
I had a friend in the other day with his rather posh Leica camera, he has just sent some snaps over and thought this one was quite appropriate

Your friend should have used a high end USB cable to transfer the image, perhaps then it would have been in colour...

As an Orbe owner before starting HFL I had always craved a SME V, well last month I got the Gyro and Orbe in here and put a SME V on the Orbe, what an arm.
I must say I was a little daunted to start with as it does look quite complicated to set up but it really couldn't have been easier as all the tools required are supplied in the box and the instructions are brilliantly laid out, after an hour or so it was all set-up and sounding great.
The SME arms really are serious pieces of engineering with amazing scope for adjustments, they are not cheap but once you own one there is some serious pride of ownership knowing you have one of the best arms in the business.
Not that you probably need any encouragement but here is a pic
