Ziggy started out Alpine White but after the abuse she took on the Rubicon Trail is now dark green with a white roof. Unfortunately, the dark green is two mis-matching shades, both metallic, neither of which I like very much. I'd like to respray her eventually in a non-metallic color. Candidate colors are Eastnor Green, Arran Beige, Brooklands Green, and Cornish Cream.

A fair question, as that's another solid green (What's with all these metallic greens, anyway?) I like that color okay on a Defender but not so well on a Range Rover (I think I've seen just one RRC in Coniston Green). I'm not quite sure why--too much yellow, I guess. Brooklands Green is by far my favorite, a proper BRG. However, it's very impractical, especially where we live (gets quite hot). Dark colors are not so practical for me also because my Rover lives outside under oak trees, birds, dirt, and seldom gets rinsed off, let alone washed. I pretty much wash it only when there is mold growing on the roof under the roof rack. Then I remove the rack and take it to a car wash. If it's very lucky, that happens once a year but more likely once every two years!

Cream / British Racing green - wasnt a fan of that one but the paint was fantastic. Pity it came off a trailer and hit a tree :(

Quite like mont pellier :



Looks blackish at night and in dark shade ;)




There was a roman bronze colour in the late 80's I loved as well! Might pick one up one day.
