Red cj7 Paint codes?

hello, I'm about to repaint my jeep in the next few weeks and I was going to go with ppg paint. I was wondering if you could please post some pictures of your red jeeps and the paint brand and code you used if you still have it. I was thinking about firecracker red but in some pics it looks almost orange.. my factory color was autumn red. but thats almost too burgandy.. I noticed a lot of people seem to have the same red and cant figure out what it is..
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here's a picture of freshly painted Sebring Red (B3). I would paint a 1977 color though if I had your Jeep, like Firecracker Red.

Thank you. I wasn't going to a 100% spot on restoration but more of like a custom restoration.

Kirker has pre-mixed paints that are well regarded. A color card is available. http://www.autobodytoolmart.com/kirk...s-p-12659.aspx

The usual source for this paint is SmartShoppers http://www.smartshoppersinc.com/colorchart.html - but I believe they do not offer a color card.

I think you are going to have trouble with looking at paint colors online, because both the camera and the monitor will affect how the color is rendered.

You could go to new car dealerships and find a car that has a color you like. Then your PPG paint store can mix it for you. Red is an expensive color, so don't be shocked at the price.

1) '77 J10 LWB, 258/T15/D20/3.54 bone stock, low options (delete radio), PS, hubcaps. 2) '82 J20 360/T18/NP208/3.73, KOs, 7600 GVWR 3) '75 CJ-6, 304/T15, PS, BFG KM2s, soft top 4) '95 VW Golf Sport 2000cc 2D
