FYI, paint code PPT, aka "Bikini Pearl," is the same paint code as "Everglade" was for the 2000 Cherokee... It's more likely to look like this:

It was at the off road expo today. One of the guys there said it was simply a color they blended, nothing about the Jeep seemed factory. Who knows.

So basically from what I've read, the only people that think this is bikini, is the forum moderators that want clicks. Whether you like it or not, it does not seem like its bikini.

This seems to be the best representation of the color available for now.

Not necessarily true, they reuse paint codes all of the time.

And given that there's a paint swatch that looks nothing like that Jeep, I'd say this is likely a recycled paint code:

I think THIS is likely the best representation of Bikini, although not a real picture:

Show me an example of a paint code being reused by Jeep. Whenever it comes up under a new name, but the same paint code, it is the exact same color. Take Nacho and Dozer for example, they are the same thing.

Mid-late 90's Chrysler/Dodge/Ram color "Polo Green" used code PGE, then used for "Green with Envy," now used for "Mojito!."

Although I believe Envy and Mojito are relatively, if not, the same; Polo Green is a very different color.

Thanks! Not sure the shitty attitude was necessary though I may have started it. However, this does give some hope for Bikini. Looks like they give a few years of a gap between reusing paint codes for different shades. Still, bikini looks nothing like these jeeps that keep getting posted looking like they are somewhere between tiffany and chief blue.

Here is the Bikini colour.....
That is a rendering based on a paint chip, which is not the least bit accurate. Even the official jeep website couldn't accurately show their colors for 2018. What I find interesting though is how the paint chip looks metallic, even though Bikini is a pearl coat.

Love Maria Menunous's BIKINI colored Jeep....they did an awesome job customizing that rig. I am wondering if she will be keeping it or if it will be auctioned off.

Glad she won the celebrity Jeep Build.

Again, read the thread, this is NOT Bikini.
