110 color change advice

Repainting the 110 later this week, need to pick a shade of green. It is an 83 SW with split doors front and rear. Everything brown is going green, inside & out - pic from pre-teardown. I plan on going with the original limestone for the top/doortops/side panels. What shade of green goes best with limestone? Coniston, Trident, Bronze... What do you think?

Kent green. But not really "stock".

Keep the brown!

If you must go green. Go Coniston.

IMHO metallic sucks

I believe Ron's is Bronze Green and looks great. See if he'll send you a picture.

Mighty, what part of Florida are you in? It's so rare to see Defenders here in central Florida.

Good points, keep it coming. Another consideration is that all of the trim, B pillars, bulkhead etc are galvy.

I have to vote for Keswick green. It is a current color but will go really well with the limestone and galvy rover chrome. You need a more vintage subdued color IMHO to make the whole effect look right.

Keep it the same or at least a color that was available for that year.

The only green in '83 was trident Green which is also a good option. I really liked Doug's 110 before its tan. Epsom and Willow are both great, particularly on a modern rig. I like the idea of keeping is subdued though. Keswick, Bronze, Trident are all contenders.

Found a good Keswick 110.
