Does anyone have any clue what color this is?

I know it's aftermarket, but does this look familiar to anyone? I have tried a few touch up paints, but nothing is the same. Because I've got a fiberglass body any scratches turn up white and there are a few spots that I would like to touch up. Thanks! P.S. The best representation is the grill I suppose.

just giving you a hard time.

maybe its supposed to be the OE color? have you decifered your VIN yet to see?
I'm not sure that the CJ5's came in that color though. could be wrong.
im sure you'll get a less smart ars answer from someone more knowlegable soon.

As strange as it sounds look at some fingernail polish for touch up, wide variety of colors and slight shade differences, usually cheap and already has a brush.

It's possible it's a Tor Red from THE 70 Dodges.

Careful your character's showing

Firecracker Red looks to be the only thing close to your current color that jeep had in 1978. color code from paint scratch is 6p.
