I hope those new windows fit after all this

What do we think? Will this grey do for the roof?

And why are only SOME of the grilles black and some body colour?

Looking good. As for the grey, in this picture it looks a bit blue-grey. Which is most likely the result of the camera/phone/computer/flash. Or a combination of those. So it's difficult to say on that score.

Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

Many grills turned black due to use. Grime, oil, dirt etc. Any grey roofs didnt stay grey for long. While the sides were cleaned, rarely were roofs cleaned, so the black diesel exhaust would very quickly turn them black.
