Trying to pick a color for my 1988 CJ/YJ Golden Eagle project.

So, I am thinking about paint for the "Golden Eagle"
Trying to pick a color. Looking for a standard color that is easy to touch up.
I am currently thinking about, what do you think?

RED


WHITE


BLACK

I don't know what the black looks like, but I think you should go with the red.

Red. It's made for Jeeps.

White FTW.

Red fades (mine is more pinkish now than red)

Black is a PITA to keep clean

White always looks clean with very little work, isn't as prone to fading, and it looks classic "Jeep" to me.

the golden eagle always looked best on white IMHO. Black would probably be my second choice, and red is a great jeep color, but not with the Golden Eagle. But to each their own.

I always picture the golden eagles in black. I think the black and gold look awesome together.

I have a white jeep and i like the color, but for the golden eagle, I like black better.
