Default Cart for Maytag 92

I have a cart sold by zkstuff, and I will be putting my Maytag 92 on it.
I am having trouble deciding what colors to paint it.
Anyone have any suggestions for colors that would look good?

Exclamation Re: Cart for Maytag 92

I would take it apart and paint the trucks and wheels black with red trim (sides of the spokes and ends of the hubs). I would sand the wood and stain with red oak stain, then give 2 or 3 coats of glossy Spar Var varnish. let dry for a week minimum, longer the better if you are going to run the engine. It will look great and Spar Var is gas resistant. Be sure to apply in thin coats, as directed on the label. Spar var is NOT GAS PROOF If the engine leaks gas constantly, it will remove most paint/varnishes, I don't care what the label says. It will resist spills and oil/grease will wipe off at the end of the day. nice looking mount, how much did it cost? Might get one for myself! Note - the 92 will make it rock a bit, as power comes on and off. It would be perfect for the 72, as power is constant!

So did you ever get the cart done? I've been thinking about getting one for my 72. I would love to see the finished project
