Paint Colour Suggestions?

Polishing is not and option so I am going to be ordering the Brightside for my Trillium within the next couple of days. Itís hard to know what the colours are going to look like once on a trailer. Iíd love to see photos of any trailers which have been painted using a Brightside paint and know the colour name. Thanks!

Great question Nancy! We too are about to get our trailer painted, and seeing photos with colour names would be very helpful.

You will probably get better feed back for a boating form when it comes to painting fiberglass and fiberglass repairs. I think you can request a paint chart from the manufacturer as well to have a better idea of the paint colors.

I used 3 parts yellow and 1 part red (both interlux brightside) to get this orange colour.

You can find more photos in my thread. https://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f56/my-76-boler-rebuild-76558-5.html

That’s sharp! I like the lower half painted a different colour. Which one of the whites is the top half?

Itís not just appearance. White on top makes for less fading and less heat gain in the sun.

Yes., for that reason I am looking at the different whites- off white, hatteras off white, blu-glo, etc but I’m not sure how they will look once on because the chips often differ online. I like the white in the photo shared above.

The color you see on your computer depends on the monitor and how it is calibrated. If you have not had it calibrated, there is no point looking.

Sorry I thought I had replied earlier, but this is just the regular white.
