Compact Jr Paint Ideas (picture heavy)

This spring I am planning on painting my Compact Jr. I am having a hard time deciding on a new paint scheme.

Here is what it currently looks like.


My tow rigs are a 2015 Toyota Tacoma Magnetic Grey Metallic (charcoal grey)(primary tow rig), 2014 Subaru Outback Carbide Grey Metallic (grey with a blue tint) and a 2003 Ford Ranger Arizona Beige Metallic.

I am afraid if I go grey and it does not match it may clash. I am now thinking I should go to the neutral colors. I do not want white or black. The decal will be red. I like the red canvas also.

Any thoughts?









Jeremy

Me, too. The dual grey looks very sharp with the red.

I'm another David B. - and I'd second his vote for the second composition. And, why shouldn't the TT 'stand out' from the TV colours ? Especially, since it will obviously outlast your next few TVs !

I vote for either of the ones with 2 tones - darker bottom, then the red stripes which really pop. Looking forward to seeing your final results.

Super images! I vote for the top one or the one with the darker gray bottom. I've never liked red and yellow together (think those common tulip combos, red and yellow). I like the light gray with the red, which really pops.

Cute trailer, too! Again, VERY nice graphics!

I would expect even slightly darker colors will cause increased solar gain - heating of the interior. This is a big reason why even though many colors are available, over 90% of vans are white. Same is true of egg trailers. Enjoy.

I vote for number 2 down, I'am going to paint my Ventura this summer and will go with a cream colour all over first, then decide later what colour around the middle and bottom Half. I just want to clean it up a little befor using this year ,maybe finish it in the fall.
