Re-colouring the Jurassic World(/Park) Jeep

Has anyone tried re-colouring the blue-and-white Jeep Wrangler from the official Jurassic World set with the red-and-team colours from the original movie? Is it possible to do with existing parts/colours?

If so, please post pics/instructions! If not, I'll download LDD and do it myself and post it for the good of the collective. ;-)

(I'm away from my PC for a week or two, though, so I can't do it immediately)

    (Now that I think of it, the front area could do with a little tweaking to make it look more accurate, I think.)

    Plasmodium, I'm actually working on re-creating the Jeeps from LJW the Game in Lego Digital Designer--and off to a pretty good start I think. My suggestion would be to start there rather than with the JW set, as I believe the JW version is supposed to be a Mercedes G-class 4x4.

    Oh, OK. That makes a bit of sense, actually. Though I didn't know there was an open top version of the G-class (maybe Lego just made it up). I actually only had a quick look at re-colouring it so far, but I got a bit stuck making the headlights rectangular in a neat way. Let me know what you come up with!

    Nope, but I just finished designing and building the 1992 RED JEEP and Green Explorer from the first movie!  Instructions are in the works!

    Nice. The '92 Jeep was what I was after. I think @Diamondback_Six is right in that the model I was trying to base it off wasn't supposed to be a Jeep, which was why I was finding it hard.

    I based mine off the video game version...with additions and changes.  My Jungle Explorer(the green truck) was based off the movie photos I could dig up.  Went a number of ways on that model....looks very different from the one DadsAFOL posted above.

    On the Jeep, I posted it at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/Diamondback/1993-jeep-wrangler-sahara-flat-top-jurassic-park-jp-10

    JP-10 is the "flat-top" driven in the T-rex chase and the final evacuation, I'm also working on the cloth-top JP-29 which carried Nedry to his doom, and the two rollcages from the arrival--if I can ever figure out how TT did those pesky cages; LDD's "flex" tool is the definition of Epic SUCK. Same thing's holding me back on the Explorers, though I've got the main load-bearing structure and most of the exterior worked out--it's the brushguard that's the killer.

    Kev, is this MOC yours on the Explorer?

    Ha, No, not mine…but it's not a bad attempt….close to mine…but I like mine better.  Took me a long time, and two full builds to get it where I wanted it , scale wise.  That version you showed is DIGITAL, for a reason.  Those mudguards used do not exist in LIME GREEN.  I won't release photos of mine until they hit my site and the instructions are available to go with them.  Very fun to design!  I wish, God I wish we had some Minifigs of Alan, Ellie and Ian to go with it!

    Right--like that version, my own runs have been strictly "perfect replication of game model" mainly to estimate what the part-count and price would be if LEGO ever decides to Get A Clue and release them as official sets. :)

    I mean, seriously, one would think that such a thing could go a LONG way toward erasing the ill-will they fostered in the JP community by that cutesy little stunt with Senteosan's Park Gate on Ideas...

    Here is the photoshop comp I did of my JP Ford Explorers, for my Custom Instructions Cover page.  I did build two of them, as each car only requires 345 parts!
