hard top color change????
 
Hi yall found a nice hard top for my 05 Willys , except its a tan color off a 02. not carzy about the vents but its only 300 bucks. so I can learn to like them...LOL

my question is what is the best thing to paint it with??
I did consider the bed liner (in green) .
any pro's /cons to this?

thanks in advance.

300 bucks! Thats a steal. I got mine from a buddy for 500 with a few scratches. Used it for a winter and turned around and sold it for 1100. So for 300 bucks haha heck ya. About the paint, many people will tell you different brands, i dont have one in particular but my advice to ya is take your dear sweet time prepping it. the better you prep, the better it will look and longer it will last!

I did roll on bedliner on mine, it turned out "OK". I should have opted for a better quality liner! But it looks good, and is holding up EXCELLENT!

thanks for the input.

ok finally got the top to my house. but now I am thinking of painting it green . can anyone tell me the color and paint code # for a 05 willys hard top? the fender flare's are a dark green .(non painted)
the body is the Moss green pearl coat.

thanks in advance

All the Willys editions originally had green softops only. If you ordered an optional hardtop, it came in tan as it did for the other Moss Green Pearlcoat Jeeps.

If it was me, I'd have the body shop match the hardtop to the green flares in color and texture.

that was what I wanted to do color wise ,had not thought about texture.
but I agree that would look the best.

I guess I will have to go to one of the local shops for a color match. my buddy is a retired paint and body man . and will prep and shoot it for me. but you know how they are they want paint codes...LOL .
thanks
