Paint color????

Hey guys, I know this is the SWB board, but all I want to know is your opinion on color.
I am in the process of stripping this XJ of its badly oxidized paint, and I was wondering if you would recomend a color to change to.
The interior is kind of a light blue or a dark baby blue.
My thoughts were maybe a royal blue or some blue a little darker.
I have heard that I should just keep the silver color.
My only problem w/ the silver is I want the original stripes to put on it if I have silver.
Does anybody know if I can get a striping kit from somewhere?
Thanks for your thoughts.

Re: Paint color????

I painted my CJ with DuPont M-90 metalflake.
It is New Mexico sky blue that flashes to silver in the sunlight ...
Maybe it will work for you ???
