What are the five colors that badger tops come in?

Black, anthracite, tan what are the other two?

Ron

Would dark green look good on a yellow D90?

If you are a Packers fan I'm sure it would look great

We had a Porsche that was yellow exterior and green interior, it took a while to get used to it.

So two tans, two greys and black?

I don't want to bug Chris if I don't have to.

Black

Porsche Anthracite

Leaning toward porsche anthracite with non-tinted windows in a Badger I FDS with both solid and windowed side windows.

How both solid and windowed?

Just got my blanked-out top from Chris. It's like a cargo version of a jumbo jet and it's sweet! Waiting for a warm day to put it on.

The windows zip in and out. I would just order two additional side windows that are solid or windowed or whatever cost less .

The grey looks good on the yellow truck - a guy near me in CA had one. I didn't dig it at the time but it grew on me. I'd still go for black, but that's just my taste.

I always kind of liked the grey on yellow. Why no tint? I would think a mild tint like the factory one on new LR's would help a great deal to keep it cooler in there in the summer if the top is on, plus it is sort of nice at night to dim the headlights of following cars.

Don't you think you need to change the seats and everything at that point to get the look right? I can see the combo, but might it not look a bit off with a tan top and a black/grey interior?

I am gonna have tan seats eventually and I think the rest of the stuff will be ok. Black, tan and yellow. You don't think?

I dunno man, taste is taste - but it just makes me think of those 50's cars that were painted 3 shades, like black, grey, and magenta. Not my thing, but who knows, it might be totally great. Maybe try and photoshop it first?

I guess I just have that HumVee I saw cruising in my head. Thought it looked great. Where is the gray you are talking about? I mean besides the seats, which I have already replaced with Corbeaus and am going to replace again with a different set of Corbeaus everything else is either black rubber, black metal or yellow.

Also if I do the soft top it will be a bikini, drop curtain bed cover combo, not a full soft top. To each his own I guess.

Bill,

That should look nice. I don't think you need to change the color of your seats. The original color is fine.

Chris says so, so it should be good

The grey? All the parts that used to be black but faded out. Don't let me talk you out of it.

Jim next you will be telling me my argyll sweatervest doesn't go with my paisley shirt!

As far as the seats go, I already gave the originals to Tony Brooks and have Corbeaus in, but I don't like the style seat I put in there, so those go back into the Corvette whence they came and I guess I order new ones from Corbeau. Maybe the Baja's in Tan.

If I were you, I'd see if I could get that top in hound's tooth check, then you could go for some tweed seats!

Like Jim said taste is taste, but I just can't see anything other than black looking good, especially on a yellow truck.
