So once again I turn to my GTT friends to give me some suggestions on creative solutions to a very basic dilemma. COLOR SCHEME for my K2 cab that will be riding atop my 1971 Case 444.

 

Here are the colors I will be choosing from:

 

(Black Semi Gloss, Desert Sunset & Power Red)

I've explained a bit more of my dilemma and the thoughts I've had thus far here (http://gardentractor...actor/?p=352282) but I am hoping to cast the net far and wide to elicit ideas for color combos you have seen or used on a cab throughout the years.

 

Let the pictures and suggestions begin. Thanks.

 

(BTW, I'm 100% certain I won't be going with a one color cab so that suggestion has already been ruled out.)

Just realized, not everyone is familiar with Case color schemes. Here's a pic of my tractor:

Thanks again for the feedback.

nbent....I've committed to at least the outside tin so far and I'm going with the Desert Sunset (tan). The inside, front tin and roof are still up in the air. I'll post a pick tonight of the front structure (the part that will hold the windshield) painted in the Desert Sunset. I really like it. I order three more cans of the Desert Sunset on line this morning and now must wait 7-10 days till it arrives. At least I can get the windshield installed while I'm waiting.

If this cab will be used in winter, black for the roof would keep it warmer!

Hey guys, I combined your feedback (black top) with that of my son (power red top) and this is the result.

The cool part is, when the cab top is installed you won't be able to see the black....best of both worlds I guess. Dropped off the front frame at the glass shop today and in a week or so I'll have a new windshield that's 29" x 29". I can't wait. Here's a pic of the front frame before taking it to the shop.
