Interior help

So I got the cj back from paint and the color and decals look great, the paint is original color (3k) and the decals are original. It had nutmeg interior and the only nutmeg piece I have is the rear seat. I want to put a super top on it so I don't have to drill holes in the quarter panel. What color interior should I go with, the bestop colors are so limited also I want the seats to match the top as well. Are the trailmax seats any good. I want it to have close to the original style as possible. Would black be too out of place. Should I go with spice? Any help and all opinions are greatly appreciated I've been struggling with this for a while.
Also any pictures of the spice or tan seats from bestop installed would be awesome. Here's a few pictures it's not put back together yet, the pictures don't really do it justice it's not as orange and lighter than the pictures show, it really changes in the sun

It's your Jeep.

For me, if there's a contrast, make it a big one. I'd go with the black as the nutmeg doesn't match and in my opinion is too close to the body color.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Thanks I'm leaning towards black, if I can't have nutmeg I might as well do black.

Black. The contrast is nice, and it is easy to source parts.

if you can't find the nutmeg and have extra money then find someone to make seat covers and recover the new ones and have a cover made for the back seat so they match.

But like everyone else has said. Its YOURs do as you please.

I'll say spice. It's not an OEM color (it's a YJ color) but it's pretty close to both Denim Tan and Honey, and spice is available in seats, tops, spare covers etc. I like tan interiors.

Have you checked out the guy on eBay who makes repro seats? I can't find him at the moment, but if you search something to the effect of "Jeep CJ seat", you'll find him. Be prepared to pay though.

I saw that guy, it would be pricey because I don't even have seats to put the covers on. Never did I think something as simple as picking out the interior color would be so hard. Thanks for all the input, I'm still split down middle.

Saw these nutmeg beauties, but not repops, they are original NOS and the guy wants a small fortune. I wonder if that is each or for a pair?
