    The question is whether you are trying to repo a stock color or simply decide on what you like best.
    I too like the green with white accents.
    If there isn't a need to go stock. GM had a beautiful blue that was popular a number of years ago. I can't remember what the name of it was.
    A black roof will offset your Sport trim nicely.
    Have you thought about a soft top and door inserts?
    Cute Aussie by the way......

    You guys are so funny! :lol:

    JD(jeepdaddy), I might be considering the soft top, but darn, I have this hardtop and though it's in poor condition, I still may attempt bringing it back to life, undecided, but the soft top is an option. I'd like to install AC, so the hardtop fully insulated would be a must, but darn it all, the Bronco's look really good without a hard top;) Thank you for the compliment on our Aussie, she's mini, 30lbs but stupid amount of energy and don't dare say "ball"! lol

    I just put a bunch of random colors, no decision is made right now as there is much work to do, but still fun and needs to be thought about;) Another thing, I don't have the fiberglass fender extensions, mine is "uncut", but with poor eyesight, looks like this first one. I won't be using the side "chrome" moulding. So don't go get all excited about colors too much;) Aren't they pretty!

    Personally I like the Bronco's with the hardtop. The one in the picture in front of the brick building looks perfect!

    That sage green colour in the first pic is one of my favourites.

    Ah, I remember the days going home from high school, especially after marching practice, in my '66 Plymouth Valiant, the wing windows and a little door under the dash allowed for air at whatever speed I was going~ saved the day! Almost like AC;)

    In my '71 Dart, that little door under the dash had enough room to stow a fifth of.......

    Well, something.

    we all know jeeps look the best in orange, and Broncos do too.

    my vote is orange.

    Looks can be deceiving when putting parts on, I thought I was making great progress, right now just body alignment issues kind of, get something squared away, then throws something else off ~

    Orange is high on the list;)

    Googled imgages~ sigh

    Going back in time a little, you guys probably remember the other jeeps that I had 'restored'

    My brothers jeep which started the whole thing off regarding jeeps
    [​IMG]

    Then my '68 which is in our garage~ I'd say it's one of my best paint jobs; everything went right on the build, but jeeps are not terribly complicated.
    [​IMG]

    Not mine, a googled image, but I like the black windshield frame, the grill if it had been an original, but it does look good, and I do like that black bumper and I'm kind of drawn to that color, but having a hard time imagining a hard top on it. The canvassy type are looking like an option~ it's all talk you know, just blabbing :blah: :rofl:
