OMG! What color? Time to make a choice!

Okay, I'm at a point that I need to figure out what color to paint the CJ7. I had originally planned on red with tan hardtop (original interior appointments are tan) since my 4 year old girl really wanted me to paint it that color. Tonight she told me she wants blue...my CJ5 is blue and white....I own a blue truck and a blue house....naaww.... so, should I go ahead with the YJ like tan and red, or go camo (a good choice since I'm not the worlds best at body work) or do what I REALLY, REALLY want to and go yellow body with black top (just like my dad's old '60 cj5 he rebuilt in the '70s)? Regardless of color, paint will be Krylon (well, probably Rustoleum...) this time around...

What do you think:

red and tan?
camo?
yellow and black--aka bumblebee?

I've definitely got to put in a vote for the yellow!

Yellow is a sexy color on a jeep!

RED & TAN Brother!

2nd choice - and maybe more appopriate for your locale: CAMO. (Practically though, red [or even yellow [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img]] is easier to find in the woods than camo.)

(Nuthin' personal on the yellow [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img] guys; guess I've been stung by too many bumblebees and yellow jackets. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img])

<font color="red">red</font color>
<font color="blue">blue</font color>
<font color="yellow">yellow</font color>

Is that important?

The trees and rocks don't care.

I would go for the Yellow. I was either going to paint my Jeep Canary Yellow or Sunfire Orange. Orange won, but they both look good.

I just finished my latest CJ project and I think yellow is the way to go.
