Color recommendation for roof

Looking to repaint my Aries Blue 97 sw roof as previous owner did a horrible job with black paint. Beside original white any cool recommendations? If you have any picture would be amazing. Thanks,

Agreed, white. Or body colored. I'm not a fan of how a black roof looks. And I can only imagine how awful it would be without a/c.

Here is a thread talking about differences in various colors of white. Sounds like Chawton is more creamy color than Alpine. Arctic white is the brightest white.

Alpine/Alaska/Fuji white is too bright. Chawton is much more appealing

No no, this is silver.
Same as or close as the rims. I did not like it white!

You don't have a close up shot of the paint where the white meets the Keswick?

I'm also deciding on roof colour, but simply between Fuji white and chawton. Body is Keswick.
