Strip and Paint time

Well I am now in the process of striping the old jeep body. I have a couple layers to go through but working out not too bad. I hope to have it all done by sunday. And hopefully back together on monday night. I will post some pics of it when it is done. I am changing the color kinda sick of black. Anyone suggest a different color to go with grey interior. thanks james

Re: Strip and Paint time

if ya wanna go with non factory... teal..like the early 90's cherokees. Factory color... red, though I'm partial to black myself.

Re: Strip and Paint time

a grey interior should go with just about any color I suppose. I like XO Rust Blue paint that I used to paint my wag.

Re: Strip and Paint time

The BRIGHT YELLOWS I was seeing in the "show us your yellow jeeps" thread were starting to grow on me.

Re: Strip and Paint time

I know I speak against many voices here, but I don't really like yellow Jeeps. Especially Corvette yellow. Maybe that's because when I was a kid, my mom would stuff me in the back of her bright yellow Stingray (my sister got the front seat [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img]) and take me to that kid crushing institution known as school. Do you know how tiny it is behind Corvette seats? I think someone would be arrested for doing that now. Anyway, If I were to change the color on mine, I'd have to go with metallic green. Sounds crazy, but I dig that bug-eye green found on several 70's era cars. I believe I've seen a couple of old Jeeps here with it, but not sure if it was a factory color. I think DC has a stone green color in the lineup now that's cool, but not quite the same. Might look good with some black hood decals and black/grey interior.
My two cents. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
