All generations, Too many colors for me to list, please state yours!
my choice would be oxford white cause im too lazy to clean dust and every single scratch
that being said my favorite might be that green on them 1st gens... wa it called cayman green?
oh yes those are good too! forgot about it, dont rrally see many white 2Gs roubd here eveything is red or blue or that champagne color all good colors!!!! i always forget about the pearls though!How about the Pearl White from the 2nd gen's? That's what I have on my 98 Limited, the color hides more dirt than regular whites.
My old 93 Limited was Dark Tourmaline Pearl, and that was a popular color for many 90's Fords. I put that on my 99 Limited when I reconstructed it.
Red with gold pearl, love to see it when it's done! None of the Explorers I've seen around here are white. Never saw the pearl white. Just love the green (Pacific Green?) on my Ex, but looking for a 2nd color possibly for the lower section and perhaps the flare part of the wheel wells, like an Eddie Bauer possibly. Ruled out black (boring) but open to suggestions!Toreador Red is beautiful. My least liked is Dark Toreador Red, which is on the bottom of my Mountaineer.
I have plans to change both when I paint my project truck to kind of match that. I found some candy concentrate from ALSA, called Blood Red. It's a paint you can mix in a clear(mid coat clear) to paint anything, but it's also great to mix with any other base colors to alter them etc. So I'm going to use Toreador Red as a base, with most of the pearl removed(1 gallon takes almost three bottles of pearl($100+ a bottle)), and add a little of the Blood Red to it, with some gold pearl which jumps out more than regular pearl.
I want to find something to replace the bottom color, I need something very dark, but without the weird purple/brown hue in it.
