Redoing my 2008 Sandstorm, Color suggestions needed!

Hey all,

The title says it all. I've got a rolled over sandstorm. nothing too fancy YET!
I do like the oem color a lot. I will probably make the mirrors, door handles, grille etc black like the trail teams.

I am open to any crazy color ideas you guys have. I would like something close to the sandstorm color so I can get away without repainting the engine bay and door jams.

I will definitely post up some pictures at some point.

Thank you!

Not too bad. How's the other side?

Copart auction? Bags deploy?

It was a local insurance auction out in Saskatchewan here actually. Won the bid on it, checked all the fluids, took the tire to get cleaned up and balanced and drove it home.

The passenger side was by far the worst of it. No structure damage at all though aside from the roof rack. The bags didn’t deploy, and the alignment feels pretty straight. Actually incredibly straight for a 250k km unit. I am really impressed by it
