Are you interested in subjective perspectives on aesthetics or pragmatic opinions based upon some measure of performance? Is there a need to repaint the roof regardless?

Do you have a/c? Not sure how hot it is where you are but having just spent a summer in Florida driving a 110 with no A/C i can't imagine the roof being anything but white.

fyi I passed you on 95 north last weekend somewhere around Melbourne FL

There aren't many colors that look good with body colored roofs. Yours looks good with the blue roof. The metallic red colored ones also look good with red roofs.

Agree with Greenspan. Normally white, but the blue on blue looks soooooo clean.

The blue does look good, but I prefer the white - I always lean toward a classic look...
