We have a new (to us) truck that DH is doing some body work on and thus it will be repainted.<br>
I didn't want to cause any additional trouble so I didn't suggest changing the colour, but much to my surprise DH asked if I wanted to change it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
It's currently a dull black with a burgundy/wine interior. I think the interior colour really limits our choices and I have no idea where to begin. My first choice is green (favorite colour!) but with the burgundy, it just wouldn't look right.<br>
So! What colour would you paint it??

I'd probably still do green. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Silver or a really pretty gun-metal grey? (I hate the term gun-metal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> but like the color).<br><br>
Maybe you could go to the paint store & get a chip that matches your interior & then use that to find a good color for the exterior.

Actually, a dark green might be okay. Otherwise, grey.

I'd go with a shiny new black, myself.

Silver looks really nice with burgundy.

If I wanted green I'd go with a very, very dark looks-black-in-the-shade kind of forest green.<br><br>
ETA: Granted the end result might be a little Christmas-y. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
