Roll cage color, revisited

Gonna re-do the roll cage tomorrow. While I've got it out I will be painting it. WHAT COLOR though? LoModYJ is mostly white with the original tan and gold striping, interior is tan (spice), and I've got Blue and white seat covers (for summer). The LovelyJeepWife wants BRIGHT YELLOW roll bar padding...Any thoughts?

This is LoModYJ with some of its natural covering of URE mud.

If you're going to cover it with yellow pad, it won't make any difference, but I'd go white if there was a can of it laying around.

Re: Roll cage color, revisited


I'm disappointed in you! You always imbed your pictures in the post - but not this time [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I'm still of the opinion that matching color looks better in general, but I did see some contrasting ones while I was searching that looked pretty sharp. I'd think with your white Jeep you could paint it pretty much any color and it would look good.

Let us know what you decide. I'd like to see pics when you're done,

I would stay with white. Without having any other color on the jeep, another color just wont look right. It would stand out way toooooo much.

Here is a pic of mine. If it didnt have the yellow decals on it, the yellow cage would look out of place.
