POLL: "Overhaulin" pick a paint scheme
Posted 06 July 2006 - 12:35 PM
Six paint schemes: Pick your favorite.
I already posted these (different thread name & subject) but I'd like everyone to chime in for a poll. Thanks in advance!!
This year marks 10 years this Beefaru's been good to me. Years of trips to see family in AZ and MT, and 9 years of hauling heavy music gear to gigs in the rockies as I gigged for a living. The last 12 months I've had a new career and its taken me to Hurricane Katrina (3 months) a wind storm in San Jose, Ca, and just recently 2 months in Indianapolis. We've been to 16 states now, and its been a reliable workhorse through all the changes the last 10 years.
I've saved enough to return the favor with a paint job to keep it on the road a while longer. Within a year I should have enough $ to get a new car and retire this one for seasonal camping/4wheeling subaru meet & greet fun. If I get a chance, I'll update the website with more pictures. --E

#6 is in the lead with 5 close behind (some want 5 with mountains added).

Even better, ditch the trim and fill the holes.

I think you should keep the trim, I think it's worth the dents and scratches it prevents, and gathering them is obviously not what you use your car for
I started painting my old turbowagon like you are; I got some cans of the black bedliner and started giving it the ol' #5, and decided that the bedliner was not the way to go, so I grabbed another fender from the parts yard and erased it. Don't use the Duplicolor bediner in a can, folks.
It was going to look good though, with the black bedliner under the dark gray. I'm thinking about doing it again with this wagon...

but, emphatically, number 4, plus the mountains. if you eliminate dividing it at the trim, then go with 5 plus mountains. the car has that character already, doesn't it? that character should be shown on its face, obvious for the world to see.
not to thread-jack, but "mountain" sure is a funny looking word, once you see it spelled out over and over.. same goes for saying it, for that matter...
