Orange Color CJ's

I am looking to paint my 1976 CJ7 "ORANGE" - I just don't know what shade.

I need some ideas or color #'s / codes.

Let's see those Orange CJ's

Thanks

Here's the orange I am going with - just laying some out to see how it looks (don't have a complete paint job yet).

You have the Color Code for the Factory "Sun Orange" ? It should be on your VIN plate or in the VIN code.

Thanks

no, it's Rust-o-luems Painter touch super coverage but the trick is use a satin finish. This one is Cinnamon color, but I used a lighter one on a trail jeep and it looked even better.
here is the before pic:

A friend of mine used to have an orange CJ7, it looked really nice. I'll see if I can dig up a pic.
