which gas tank are you using? ... or are you doing rear and an auxillary?
FYI. Rover Accessories makes an Aux tank "kit" for the 90, but it's a bit different from the Euro tank. Basically it doesn't make you lose the passenger seat box space. Comes with it's own pump, wiring etc. and skid plate. You might lose a few of the extra gallons that the Euro tank affords, but I would almost rather have that seatbox space. The tank is designed to feed fuel into the main tank on the NAS 90.

Randy, look at your rear quarter panel and tell me your truck won't look good with that color.
I say go with Bonnati Gray, your D90 will look sweet I still can't believe I picked the Oslo Blue over the Bonnati Gray

I love that color but Painting a metalic color on a truck in pieces and then putting it together, it will never match. When painting a metalic, everything has to be painted at once together.

Now the paint is applied in several coats right? Why not painted it gray and leave the last coat, install the parts, and take it the paint shop to apply the last coating and everything should match. That's how my plan is when I paint the 110 black.

Why not just paint all the parts at the same time? Too much of a mismatch if its disassembled?

You could but then you can just edge all the parts, put it together then paint it if you are going to do it that way. The thing is, when you paint it apart like the factory, you don't have to tape and mask up stuff. No overspray on parts and no tape lines. Black, you don't have to wory about anyway... Metallics are a real PITA. I will be using a single stage PPG paint similar to an Imron. It is very durable and I coat with no clear or anything like that.. If it gets damaged, its easy to fix and match. Forget a metalic. You have to worry about air pressure, gun setup, temp, humidity. It is much more noticable in a metalic.

Chris, you should see the amount of parts when its disassembled. lol...... You would need a big booth. The other reason I am staying away from darker colors is that if you get any dents you see it alot more in a dark color. A light color is more forgiving and also the LR bodies are never straight looking as it is. You guys don't like Yellow? ??? At least I don't have

mud flaps planned for the truck but I do plan on the Ugly monster JEEP tires..

The paint is not a definate yet anyway till its actually in the booth.

I love the AA Yellow. The previous owner must have repainted or replaced the passanger side door or front quarter because we have a definate shade differance.

Oh no, I like the AA yellow to, in fact I almost bought a yellow D90 before mine but couldn't justify paying $50K for 97 ST with 19K miles.

Randy is building a very nice custom D90 but he need to stay away for the colors that were offered for the NAS 90's and that;s it.

I like alot of the other LR colors but they all are metalic or the pearl colors like the Oslo blue. I love it along with the silver but what a bitch to paint. I want to stick with a standard solid color. Once its covered in mud who cares anyway ... Jorge stopped by over the weekend and he said it all looks so clean and new. I replied," yeah, until the first mud hole" .. then its all down hill from there.
