Default Boot colors

Does anyone know how many different colors the convertible boot was available in?

Cool Re: Boot colors

I could be wrong, but I believe that there were just 3 OEM colors for the convertible boot...light tan, gray, and black.
I painted mine with SEM Colorcoat to match the 2005 Dream Cruiser body color.

The boot color usually matched the interior upholstery color.

What color is taupe? Light tan or grey? The reason I ask is I thought the taupe was the light tan. I bought a taupe boot from a PT Cruiser Forum member. What arrived was a light grey which doesn't match my cars Light Almond Metallic at all. Looking at the taupe boots on ebay they look light tan not light grey.

Taupe is a very variable color depending on the source varying from a pale almond shade through yellow Browns into grays of varying lightness.

Tan or taupe, light gray, & slate gray. Sounds like you you need the tan. Taupe is like a medium gray with a brownish tent. Kinda dark.

This one is questionable. sooner's had the light tan. But not sure if the taupe color is generally like a medium to dark gray with a brownish tent on the seat fabric. I think the dream had a special color for its top and boot and the others used the taupe or called tan also. But the latter is darker than the 05 dream. Info is contradictory on this.

Are you talking about the definition of taupe or what Chrysler was actually putting on their cars?

Cool Re: Boot colors

The PT Cruisers with the tan interior and boot were officially called "Pebble Beige".
The only descriptions of the beige boot covers that are accurate should be "tan".
The grey a are light and dark Taupe....typically looking "grey".
