Orange is great, but I am somewhat partial to the 1976 Omaha Orange...

That slate blue is one of my favorites Jeep ever came out with. I also think it would really look great on that Gaucho truck... But I might be biased because I'm an OU grad and the sight of anything resembling burnt orange makes me sick

Whenever I build anything, paint is the absolute last step in the process, after everything has been assembled, installed, checked for fit and then removed. Maybe it's just me, but I always find a way to nick or scratch the paint if it's painted while I still have build work to do.

Yes it is, sorry. I'm not a fan of yellow. I don't really like bright colors either. Sunburst orange is probably the brightest I'll go.

Jeff, you are probably right. Knowing me, I would damage the paint somehow.

I vote for the sunburst orange. But I want to reiterate what Jeff said. Don't paint it until its done. You don't want to mess up the paint job before you can even drive it.

Sunburst orange. I think it most faithfully follows the bold color of the original while using a modern jeep color palette.
