I have just ordered a 2 piece tonneau cover for my Oxford White 03 vert. Now I have to decide what color to paint it. the vert has a black top, so should I paint it black? White?
Any ideas and photoshop jobs will be greatly appreciated.

I say go with white, I'm trying to imagine it being black, but I don't think that it'll flow with the rest of the car.

Just my opinion:)

That's what I am worried about. I was hoping someone on here can do the photoshop magic and show me some options.

I can do the photoshop for you. Do you have a picture of your car you could send me and a picture of the tonneau?

I'm at work right now, but that's what I do (graphic designer), it might take a little while but I can throw something together for you to get an idea of what it'll look like!:)

In my opinion, get it in white to match. any other color is definately gonna make it look a little odd. I wanna get one for mine too now. Youll be happy with white to match, itll give it a really really high end two seater look that even non mustang people just love (aka the hot women cough cough, I never said that if you are married by the way!)

If you go to this page it'll show you one with the white and then one with the black!

I personally like the white!

I was looking for a tonneau and came across these pictures, but let me know if you need me to create something for you!:thumbsup:

This just doesn't look right to me!

At 50, I am not so flamboyant anymore, so white sounds good to me. Some of the youngsters that I work with will probably say add flames to it. LOL

Now yours look beautiful with the matching color. Anything else wouldn't look right. With white, a contrasting color sometimes looks better. I am just worried that it will look too plain if I paint it white. We'll see soon enough. I am going with white.

I was thinking, if you want something to maybe show some constrast without going too overboard, What about painting the tonneau the same color as the interior of the car, like a Mineral Gray. That way it isn't too dark for the white and it'll flow with the interior of the car? Just a thought:)

It's something to consider. I'm trying to imagine that now.

I think just go white...you'll see the black around the bottom where they go from the top...sorry I am not sure how to say what you'll see but, I think you will understand when you put them on...Stay White...it's the best way. They look sweet when you see that all flow in the body color..trust me on this one.

I would look at some colors like dark blue or marroon. But i have seen a silver saleen painted the same color and it looked real nice. If you go with a different color, you could paint the calipers to match. Just some idea's, either way it should look good.

Yeah, I can't wait to see the finished product.


By the way, my first choice of car color was white, but they couldn't find one.

Sniperfox, these pics may be to late but this is what I did. Painted the same color as the car but also added the same color as the interior to the front edge of the cover . The edge that that goes behind the front seat. I get alot of compliments on the way it turned out. Hope this helps.

Sorry for the delay guys. I have been tied up in a murder trial and I haven't had any time to get the top painted. Incidentally, I am the cop....not the defendant in case you were wondering.:blast:
