New Paint suggestions
Well its time for a new paint job. Currenlty bright yellow, however yellow is not for me. Just wondering what colors really look the best. I really don't care about factory specs. I just want it to look sharp. i have polished svx wheels and the rest of the D90 is trimmed in black. I have searched multiple pictures and am just looking for suggestions.

show some pics of your truck with the black so we can make recommendations

I honestly dont have any at all this computer. Its blaze yellow with chequer plating everywhere in black...

I'm partial to shades of green or blue. Black, silver and anything metallic seem out of place, although some love em.

I'm headed in the direction of dark green, or black... NO A/C and Right Hand Drive...

How about hotpink with black polka-dots or diareah green?

Only if you know an orthodontist that would be willing to use her breast for the dots.

Not that I want the same color truck as John Mayer but I am a fan of this blue.

Arles Blue. The best Rover color hands down,

Assuming this is a NAS color, any idea what year?

94, 95, 97

That's Arles. I'm not much of a fan of the Dark Greens. They look too Eddie Bauer to me unless they have an olive tint.

If you have the SVX wheels then your truck might not look great with the old school type colors. Maybe try Bonnati Grey or just go White.

I'm more of a conniston green kinda guy. I think they look even better on Disco I.

Consensus is that Conniston with a White roof is the most rare and valuable of all colors.

x2. You'll be the only one in the US with that color.

Rosproline157 December 12th, 2011 06:52 PM

Bonnati Grey is awesome!! Where can I find the paint code or is it a NAS color code?

specops1526 December 12th, 2011 06:55 PM

I think it was a color for maybe the RR or LR3 here in the US. If not, the LR code should be out there if you google it.

Rosproline157 December 12th, 2011 06:58 PM

Probably will dodge the conniston green sorry guys.

Neil McCauley December 12th, 2011 07:01 PM

Good because my D90 is conniston green. :)

specops1526 December 12th, 2011 07:02 PM

Actually, I think the 04 DII came in Bonnati Grey. You can probably call a dealer and get the code.
