    Well, I like your paint scheme. In fact I am getting ready to repaint mine similarly except mine is currently solid champagne. It will be champagne on the top and chestnut color on the bottom. If your interior is grey, I say stick with your current scheme. It looks great.

    Looks like you already have. Honestly unless the other side is horrible I mean...... Well anyway, I would say if you are paying a professional - go with any color you want. If its a DIY job - keep the colors you have to avoid painting engine bay, interior, etc. Looks great though. I can't wait to see an improvement.

    Doesn't look like it needs paint. I would spend the money on tires or something else for the cruiser. If you are going to paint it, then I would stick with the original colors.

    Nice cruiser :)

    Looks great as is-I see no need to re paint at all. How about those tires-they look small with your lift.

    I've always liked that two tone combo on the 62's. As a matter of fact I bought a 62 about 10 years ago that was perfect in that same color. I already had a 60 and an 80 but I saw it for sale for 3500 clams and couldn't pass it up. I wound up selling it to my cousin.

    The wife and cruiserhead cuz w/the armor all after taking delivery-

    I was referring to if you wanted to switch colors. I think it looks unique as is- but champagne would look good too- it will always look clean.

    Silver or white looks amazing on a 60, but two tone color schemes are in a different league.

    Keep the colors it has now.
