Badger top color advice

Getting a new badger top for my d90. The truck is British Racing Green. Has anyone seen a green truck with a top other than black? I like the black, but my bestop is in amazing shape and im not sure i care to have 2 black tops.

I have seen them in tan and they look really good.

I also saw a light grey one that would look nice as well.

I vote for tan.

Bennett,

I think tan would be a great choice--I love the classic British Racing Green- Tan combo..
Heres a pic courtesy of ECR: http://eastcoastrover.com/108two.html

Do they make sandlewood for the full tops? I got a sandlewood colored bikini top for my BRG truck.. it looks nice in the sunlight (definitely more subdued than the tan).

Heres a truck with the anthracite top (was for sale on here last year): http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...achmentid=9608

Hope this helps.

I have a BRG Defender and it has a grey top. I think it looks real good but I am partial to it

Thanks guys. Those pics were a huge help. Looks like im between the "Oak Twill" of the one from ECR (may be a bit too light) or the pearl beige sonnenland (between oak twill and sandlewood). What about window color? Bronze or grey?

Clear for the windows. You will thank me later. Seeing out of tinted soft top windows is near impossible.

We have sandlewood (dirty clayish tan) and tan, as well as the oak color twillfast. The black and grey colored tops get a grey tint window, while the tan colored tops get a bronze tint window.
