Another very interesting BBDB puzzle that had the same infrequent pattern to delete several digits involving eight steps to complete.
Quote:
In order, I had a ER <3>, coloring <4> with multiple deletions, ER <3>, hidden UR <45>, kite <8>, coloring <8> with multiple deletions, xy-wing <268> and coloring <6> with multiple deletions.

don't forget the extended w-wing strong links on 6 in column 4 connecting the (6,9) cells.
extend the 9 from r4c5 down to r7c5 over to r7c9... this eliminates the 9 in r3c9, solves the puzzle.
