Painting tan, thinking AMC 6d Sand tan any pics?

Hey guys, I'm picking out the color for my jeep, thinking a flat/satin tan. And have been looking around.

So far I've looked at a ton of color chips and kinda like Hellelfenbein (Lighty Ivory) It's glossy but i'd flatten it out.

Also I found AMC 6d Sand tan (PPG 2820, Dupont 44111) but I have only seen a picture or two of the color on a jeep and would like to see some others.

Anyone have any other opinions on the color?

Flat colors will stain and 'hold' those stains.
I like that tan. but would clear coat it.

I was a bit scared of that, but this tub is far from straight on the sides, shes been through a lot. I got it as straight as i could but im afraid gloss would show every wrinkle

Not semi-gloss, satin. I wouldn't do flat. It stains and looks like crap real quick even though I like the look of it. Satin gives it enough protection for easy cleaning, looks very good and hides dents/imperfections pretty well. I did mine in semi-gloss at first but didn't like it. Now have satin and get LOTS of compliments.

Good point. I should have said 'satin'.
Not sure how the OP wants to apply the paint.
With "rattle can", for the most part your choice is gloss, semi-gloss & flat in finishes.

I use satin and have no stains. I have satin black on my yj and am doing flat tan on the cj. I only have the back part done but I had flat camo in green, tan, brown on my xj with no staining issues.

My CJ5 was originally Sand Tan but this very close. The painter said this has just a little more yellow in it and being somewhat color blind I have to take his word for it. See images on my forum page, can't upload pictures for some reason.

x2! I keep going back and forth between that color with black wheels or keeping my satin black with chrome wheels. That icon is too convincing.
