1980 CJ5 Renegade Black

I just bought this Jeep and it was repainted a few years ago to a black. I tried to find the color codes hoping it was painted to an original color. I can't find that Jeep had a black 1980 CJ5. I need to touch up some spots but don't know what paint scheme to buy.

Here's the color chart for 1980. "P1" at the bottom right is black, even though an actual color sample isn't shown.
You can find what color it was originally painted on the ID plate on the firewall near the brake master. in the 2nd row, the middle 2 digits indicate the color code.

According to the chart I linked above, 0B is smoke grey Iridium.
1CE is the interior trim code, saying it came with black linen vinyl bucket seats.

What color is the engine bay, underside, dash panel and interior floor? Unless the previous owner did a complete frame-off strip down paint job (which I doubt), there should be plenty of areas on the Jeep to spot the original color. Smoke grey iridium was a nice dark deep metallic grey, easily distinguishable from black.

Even if it was a factory color you don't know what paint was used. You may want to try a rattle can paint in a door jam or some other "not seen" area to see if it's a match and if there are any compatibility issues with it.
