A little help with the nutmeg thing. I purchased Steel Horse nutmeg replacement seats about 7 years ago. They were a little darker that the factory nutmeg trim in my '82 CJ7 Renegade, but blended well. Unfortunately, Haartz, the company that makes the fabric for such manufacturers as bestop, etc, discontinued nutmeg. This affected me big time, since I was right in the middle of an "off-frame" restoration, and had already committed to nutmeg by purchasing the full "Renegade" striping and decal kit, that had nutmeg in it. On that note, I am currently looking for some Bestop nutmeg seat covers (front and rear), and a bestop nutmeg roll bar cover. Any body got 'em, I'll take 'em!!!
I tracked down a nutmeg dash pad in Michigan through "search tempest". It was in great condition with no cracks but there was some surface rust on the back that cleaned up real easy.
I'm still looking for a factory nutmeg center console. The prior owner installed a OEM black console that I will gladly trade if someone has a nutmeg console they're not using and would like to unload. Please send me a PM if you're have one to sell or trade.

Agreed, The rest of wlawyer's jeep looks like honey to me. I just redid some parts with the SEM color coat and I love it. With proper prep it's very durable also. I think they had a color close to nutmeg when I got mine. The SEM color "camel" comes close to spice and closer to honey. The only thing is that almost anything in honey is likely very faded.
