This one looks best for color combination and has a forward motion effect. :D DannyImage

White on top is probably the most important to keep inside temps down... I do like the 2 tone paint job, no matter which you pick.

I painted my garage that color (roughly) and haven't stopped regretting it. It looks great, but it makes the garage hotter than heck. With that thought, I'm liking the design in Halfdome Danny's post.

Was going to paint my tear. Got the wood home and found it was Birch! It would be a sin to paint over Birch. mFrom that day forward it was a "Woody." That meant hiding all fasteners, lots of glue and pocket hole screws.

We decided to paint our tintop to match the tow vehicle and think it looks great. We seriously considered the heat factor...but gotta love that "Tango Red"!!

The white vs red won't make a huge difference in heat, and even with white, it's gonna get hot sitting in the sun.

Camp under a tree, or get an EZ-Up if you want to stay cool in the sun.

OK but what happens when the Jeep goes? JEEP just empty every pocket $>
seriously matching anything that will be ephemeral, unless you plan on repainting...
White is cooler, and I got TD so I don't have to put up a tent.
