Hi all,

I'm looking for a bit of advice/feedback really from all of you out there!!.... :bluewave:

My next 'project' on my Dolly is to replace the rear pillar 1/4 panels, as you can see from the pics she currently has black vinyl panels which are in need of repair (slight cracking). I ordered a couple of sample vinyl's from Martrim, black and brown (Mulberry), my conundrum is whether to fit the 'original' black panels or go for a bespoke look and fit the brown, which, as her official colour is Sandglow, I think would look quite nice. However, I don't want to go too off line with her original look so thought I would get a general consensus....So Black or Brown????.....Thanks in advance and look forward to hearing your thoughts....

Richard

I also think brown would be fun, but you would need to do something with the other black exterior parts - sills and back of bootlid and rear panel. That would really look 'bespoke' but also classy. You couldn't do black and brown together. I'm assuming your interior is brown / beige of course.

No, go brown. I've seen a couple of beige vinyl roofs in the past and they do look a cut above with the right colour paint (not with pag blue as one was though!)

I might be a bit late with this.. :)

Brown would go very nice indeed if you have a Chestnut Brown interior.. 8)
