Anybody paint their flat's body color?

Well, as my build begins I could use some help with a decision. I have a rescue green Sahara. I'm going to either do Bushwacker Flat's or Poison Spyder if I can swing the extra cash. I'm seriously considering shooting them Rescue Green since I have plenty of it around. Has anybody done theirs body color? Got any pictures? Does it hold up ok on the Bushwackers?

you forget about this pic?

notice the green doesnt really match, that rescue is a BITCH to match and IMO looks like crap when it is two different shades.

if you just wheel in florida I would consider doing them RG but if you wheel anyplace with rocks and chance of scratching them up worse I wouldnt so that you can touch them up easily.

Nope, I didn't forget that one! It's actually the ONLY Rescue Green one I've seen, and from just that angle. That's actually kind of why I wanted to see more pictures, to see how well they match up!

I repainted my bubbling hinges RG and while I thought they matched up just ok when I first put them back on, a month later they look factory. Now the hinges I didn't pain are bubbling up, so I figured if I was mixing some up, I might as well do the fenders also.

Just wheeling in Florida and Belize, so trees and bushes are my main issue. No big rock gardens here!
