best color on 4.1

Hi, My rav4 is green which is the color i hate most on cars, but it was a good deal with low miles so i bought it anyways...

I am thinking of painting when the weather gets warm, I am going to do a rolled on paint job, I have done it before and it comes out perfect and a lot cheeper

just not sure what color yet

I wouldn't worry about the colour if the paint was in good condition,certainly would'nt do a cheapo paint job on a good car..lol....if its dark green metallic i like that especially with black/graphite alloys.

I've actually saw some good results with coach paint applied with a brush on vintage vehicles.......i suppose if you take your time preparing anything is possible
