not sure yet...I will be in SLC all next week, so the first week in Feb it will get completely sandblasted, so I will primer, and pick a color. I will bedline the interior as well, and one wheel needs to get warrantied (severely bent it) so I will tear down the others to open up the rings a bit with a plasma ( so I can get my hand in there ) and re-paint those too.

Any ides for color?

I thought about:

Rootbeer (seen it though)
Black Cherry (good friends buggy is already this color so, no)
Red (I dunno, honestly seems kinda boring)
Lime Green (air randy already has it so, no)
Hot Rod Black (seems cool, but I bright color might be fun too)
Orange (one of my favorites, but its been done)

thats the Hot Rod Black...similar to the current color, more black less gray.

Considered it...seems done though. I'm still leaning towards it though...

Can't do blue either, good friends' buggy is bright blue.

Camo? Nah go with flat black this way when you lean it against a rock you can touch it up right there..... Just another trail fix!



You could go with Maroon, but that color has been played

WINTER camo.

EVERYTHING has been done, Jeremy. The few things that haven't... there's a reason.

So red is boring, eh??

Ha! Red is the new Toyota #033 white. Go tan or white and get some fancy 1980s replica pinstripes. That would be bitchin'.

Winter camo? any camo....uh no


...and I re-read that shortly after, and wondered, "self, is Bill Morgan going to see this?"

Actually I love red, but lots of guys have red

If I could find some re-production retro stickers for a decent price, I would probably go Khaki and put them on


I've been thinking orange cream...orange on top and khaki on the bottom, that could be cool
