To reduce cleanup and maintenance time, I'd repaint my UHaul in the color of squashed bugs.

Squashed bug color hmmm... Does Crayola make that color?

I would vote for Metallic Orange!

Our current unit is the color of road dust. Not a particular favorite, but I had to choose a paint color and that happened to be the color of the truck. Looks nicely matched together, and when it's dirty it doesn't show.


BUT.......if money were no object?????
That elegant, classic red and cream...and pulled by a vintage 'Vette in the same color.

OR.....

Aqua and cream, with a Nash Metropolitan in the same color beside it!

*sigh*

Red with white pin striping. Then I'd have to buy a 1956 Chevy truck, have it over hauled and paint it to match. (Sigh.)

I'd go for 1930's green on the bottom, buff or almond on the top, and a burnt sienna belly band trim. Since cost is no object I'd order a new toyota fj cruiser painted to match.

WooHoo, is this fun to see what you all would choose! It's a bit of an indication of your personalities and by the amount of RED chosen, we DO have a wild and crazy group here!



Keep 'em coming! This is fun!

If money was no object, I'd have Chip Foos do a mural of a lighthouse overlooking the ocean at sunset (to go with my interior lighthouse theme.) Lots of beautiful blues in the water and sky. Ahhhhh........I feel more relaxed already!

I would go with ORANGE !!
It reminds me of Autumn, my favorite time of year... AND... the trim on my teal Isuzu Amigo is orange!

But I really like the idea of a scenic mural too if I could ever decide on what to do!

I at one time wanted to paint it silver to look like an Airstream, but my son demands they both stay white, he likes to keep things "OEM" as he says!!!

I think... I might just sneak a big painted yellow sunny side up yolk on the roof of mine though!

You guys surprised me. I didn't figure many of knew what purpleen was, but since you didn't ask I guess you all know. I'm impressed.

Byron, I have to admit that I did a search when I saw your color choice! At first I wondered if there was a mysterious combination of purple and green, a cool paint that separates and allows the complimentary colors to emerge. Ha! Was I wrong!

I love the color shown in this photo:

purpleen

The purple really shows beautifully in this one:
more purpleen

I saw different textures, however, which could be veddy cool!

Thanks for posting purpleen, it would be wonderful on our eggs!
Especially, for my Faberge Egg!

Cheers!

Hey, Sandra, I couldn't find any murals Chip Foos has done. This is his bio,
chip foos

Sounds like he is an icon.

We must be the same age, Suz! I had a few bridesmaids dresses of the same. The mysterious tone on tone is pretty cool.

I did a wall treatment about 15 years ago, before they were the rage. I had a beautiful old home with an incredible stain glass window with this magnificient shade of pink/purple. Well, I looked at color chips from the paint store to try to match this so I could paint the walls. After some searching without luck, I decided to mix my own. Well, 5 gallons later...and the perfect shade of pink, I was ready to apply my paint. Much to my surprise as the paint dried, it bagan to have these lovely lighter streaks throughout. It was a beautiful surprise and I kept it! In my efforts to get just the right shade, I inadvertently added 1 quart of red oil based paint!

My mistake turned into a nice effect. I wonder what the new owners of that house did with the remaining 4 gallons of that fushia pink paint?

The company I work for makes accessories and parts for big rigs. We had a Freightliner painted in pupleen to take to truck shows. It reall drew a crowd.
