I'll except muddy skittles or urban camouflage for the next few days... Then it might be Impact Orange/Black or black/orange.

Thanks guys. In due time.

Doors will be getting a new spacer/armor piece to replace the tnt spacers that are needed for the front tub armor. I had the pieces cut when they cut the tramp stamp. Once it warms up, they will get paint and spacer/armor along with the interior panels getting paint too. Then the hardtop will get a liner for noise absorption, possibly a XJ rack and body work and black bedliner type paint for the exterior.

What liner are you looking at? Or are you just going to make your own? I've been interested in doing this for a long time in my hardtop, so I'd love to hear others' ideas.

Thanks Eman and Imped.

Lee, not sure what I will use... Haven't looked into it yet, have you? If custom, .25" plywood with padding attached, covered in material. With the XJ rack, it and the plywood could sandwich the top maybe, then silicone the holes. And still looking into the sunroof option too like this.

Only thing I've really found that I like the look of is this dark mat from HushMat: http://shop.hushmat.com/p/hushmat-silencer-megabond-1-4

But that price is out of this world. So I'm still looking. I don't want to make it too complicated so I don't think the plywood and headliner route is for me. I'd like to get a dark, non-logo insulator and attach is to the top and be done.

Also would like to put a heat shield down underneath my carpet. But there's tons of options for that, so that will be my secondary focus.
