Very nice, mate. I've been thinking of the same thing, only going Medium Tan. But in the end I'll never do it - it will be Alpine White forever!

I like it but my eyes keep getting drawn to the silver skid plate. Maybe some black rhino liner or rubberized undercoating so it blends in?

Can you be any more specific? I was thinking of doing the same thing, and yours looks great. Semi-gloss finish, or satin? Do you know the paint code you used?

Thanks!

Well, when I said "medium tan" above, I'm thinking the lighter of the brown colours in my Land Rover pic. Similar to yours, but different enough I'm not paying you a franchising fee
