Default Jeep colour - Vote

Folks,
The idea was to give a rugged look and i loved the matt blackish grey. The experiment with Matt dark grey turned out to be like this:







Now, I have 3 options:
1. Retaian the same colour and go with Black Canvas top
2. Paint the bull bar, fender flares, and windsheild in Black and have a black canvas to give that contrast.
3. Gor for completly different colour (the new bolero green or something)

What do you guys think?

I think ait would look really rugged in a Matt Olive Green and Dark Green combination. No I don't mean like patchy, but where bullbars rollbars etc are darker green and the Jeep itself is a nice ripe Olive green.

All matte finish. SUper. Just my opinion.

Even the Camel color or the beige shade we all must have seen will look cool

Or you can go for All Black Metallic color with chrome alloys etc etc.

the existing color is not at all appealing and will spoil the whole look of the baby

I chose the second option, but on second thought, why not go for a desert camo type paint job? or khaki

Sam: I went to RTO and meet the Inspector. Oliv, Dark or Military green or any shades around that is illegal and they wont sign my Transfer Papers or approve the colour. So he said, go with lighter shades (like the one in UVA and Bolero) if you have strong fetisgh for green...:(

sunny /ajith: Even I am thinking of that

I voted for different colour. My choice will be a two colours. Why don't you try two colours (green & pale yellow like army jeep). It will look good.

Chose the third option. The color I suggest is light brown like in this pic below:

or here in header's jeep

Other colors that I suggest are: off-white (little creamish), light-blue like arka's jeep

This matt grey looks horrible!! In fact, it looks like an unpainted Jeep. Please change the colour to anything else. My first choice would be green, but since that is not possible....paint her black.

Thats funny! Ive never heard of such a rule existing here! There are several jeeps (civilian) running around in these shades here.....! Or does this rule apply only in chennai?

I'd go for Dark Green or Black- but then Shiny black would make it look over-restored for a jeep....and matt-black is no fun.......so Dark Green or even Biegey/chocolate ice-crema brown would be good IMHO.
