I am looking at buying a Berrien body for my buggy but can't decide on a color. As an Illini fan I am partial to dark blue or orange. Berrien was nice enough to send some swatches of fiberglass with the colors, but the regular gelcoat dark blue seems much darker than I thought and the orange is a little too flat.

The metalflake in cobalt blue and tangerine orange might be a little more flake than I am wanting too, but it is hard for me to picture on an entire buggy.

Anyone have pics of a Berrien Buggy in Cobalt Blue Metalflake? Tangerine Orange? Dark Blue? or Orange? If so, I would greatly appreciate looking at the pics! I hope to make my decision soon.

There are plenty of examples of 'flake Buggies on the Vegas Buggies website, I'm guessing they'll be getting their supplies of flake from the same source.

Besides anything for upholstery, I try to provide anything a buggy guy would want or need. As you know I also like producing stuff for the buggy like tops, carpets, scuff guards and such. Too bad the market is so small.
