PostSubject: Dune Buggy Color   Thu May 10, 2012 8:43 pm

I am getting ready to paint the Duner, I have some old paint my dad has had for a while. I just wanted to hear others opinions. I am going to mix up either some Gold metallic, or bright Green metallic. Which color do you think will look more appealing? I am in need to sell it and I think I will get a lot more money if it is painted, instead of flaking off red metallic and white gelcoat.
Thanks
Andy

Well, all the sanding is done. The duner is now sporting a nice new red-oxide primer color. I did get the dash painted black though. Hopefully I will have time tomorrow afternoon to paint, otherwise first of next week. I did get the paint mixed up, she will be a medium green metallic with a slight blue hue.

Andy, that looks seriously AWESOME! cheers I'm still sad that you want to get rid of it, but it should be a lot easier to sell now.

I noticed the seats, but couldn't decide what they were. Those are tractor seats!

The dune buggy or the seats? I bought them at the Bobcat dealer in Sacramento. Good deal and pretty comfortable too.
