I like the Fuji White, ut's about the brightest, whitest white I've seen on an automobile. Wife is demanding a RR in that color.

I like Epsom Green (with mud) which is what I have on mine (at the time I could choose between that and white!). Though it is a metallic colour it is very subtle, and it is so dark that in low light it looks almost black. I think it is a worthy successor to the traditional Bronze Green.

But I also really like Willow Green that is on the 97 NAS 90s. Balmoral Green also not bad but a bit "institutional", like it's a parks service truck or something. What can I say - I think some shade of green is just the natural colour for a Series or Defender Land Rover.

I'm a big fan of a non metallic British Racing Green. My Dormobile is 1973 Jaguar British Racing Green and with an alpine white top.

Another vote for Bonatti for two stage paints
as well as another vote for Trident Green for single stage

For some reason when I had the Trident green 110 aka Shrek I didn't like the color but have now come to appreciate it on my sons truck.

I suppose I am a sucker for the institutional colors (if by institution you mean military) over the more modern metallics. Pretty much all of the institutional Series colors I'm a big fan of. RAF Blue in particular.

Not a Land Rover color, but I think that Nimbus Grey would look nice. It's one of my candidates when I repaint the 110.
