I saw a Corvette Racing Yellow on a Jeep and it look awsome. I wish I would have seen it before mine got painted Ford Redfire. It was a little expensive, but I like it. I can't wait until I get my jeep done so I can put the body on it.

I gotta agree with JIM79CJ7, Orange Baby!! As soon as I finish up my 75 CJ, it's getting a coat of Prowler Orange. Sorta metallic Orange used for 1 year on the Plymouth Prowler. Actually I like the bright, vibrant colors. Yellow looks good, I also like the Amber Fire on my Dakota.

I like silver red & yellow....

I can vouch for black getting too hot and looking trashed with just dust

Metalic Silver vs. Gunpowder (?) Gray

Yellow Fever

Purple of course! Why? Because it's not the standard, white, red, blue, black yellow!

I am restoring my 1986 CJ-7. It has the factory original black paint (faded). In paint shop right now getting a "Carbon Black" BMW M-3 paint (Paint code Carbon Schwarz # 416). Gonna be awesome. Only problem with this paint is your body can not have ANY dents. Even the factory welds/rivet areas have to be worked out. When you are finished - it is "Perfection".
