Nutmeg paint for a 1985 CJ7

I am looking for a paint match for our 1985 CJ7. I want to paint the hardtop and can't find the right number match for the paint.

The paint store matched "nutmeg" and it was very dark compared to our original interior nutmeg.

Any ideas?

Not to say that you don't know what you're talking about, but are you sure that it is nutmeg? and not honey. My 85 is honey and it is lighter than the nutmeg but darker than tan. There is a VIN decoder on here and you can confirm what you have. Hope that may help.

Its only money....I'll make more tomorrow!!

My 84 has nutmeg seats and top. I took a sample to local paint store and they matched it. Painted the top with a low nap roller and a foam brush. it turned out real nice. Used oil based paint and it has held up real well for two years now. You may want to consider switching to spice because nutmeg repalcement stuff is VERY hard to find.
