We have been trying to think of features and colour to take the edge off or break that impression. The rear bar is hammertone and there will be aluminium extrusion to cap all the joins and of course along the roof edge. So now we have a white fibreglass box with aluminium edging. We don't have any opportunity to colour the fibreglass panel itself so the most that can happen in that area is stickers or vinyl wrapping.
Having considered painting of the cabin to give some colour but of course also equals cost, we have retreated to simply having a black and white truck and to make it obvious that black is a trim colour as opposed to a colour that happens to be associated with a truck eg black tyres, black plastic mud guard. So the lower trim - including around wheel arches will be the hammertone finish leading back to the rear bar (the bull bar will also be hammertone when we get to it) . The vertical trim and the edge of the roof will be powdercoated black.
Trying to get some picture of how it will look . . .
