CJ7 Limited's color question

In the restoration process of my slate blue metallic (code 2C) 82 Limited, I have some color interrogation.

The windshield lost the black color of the Limited package. What is the right color code? Is it the Classic Black, paint code P1?
The rocker trim are now also blue. I have read on this forum that the Limited edition got body colored rocker moldings, but all the Limited pictures I have found show either black or silver, never blue. Could they be black like on a Laredo?

Also, unfortunately I don't have the original hardtop. What was the color for the slate blue Limited?
I would really appreciate to hear from someone here with an unmolested slate blue Limited. Thanks for your help.

Thanks. I have seen this video when it was released but forgot about it. Can someone confirm the anodized rocker molding? Seems different of what I can find elsewhere. For example on a copper brown Limited they appears black in an 82 advertising. Also black on this slate blue Limited I found on the internet (stock ?) and seems also black on a brochure dealer for a mist silver one.
And what do you think of the blue color of the hardtop? Is the difference with the body related with the fiber material? Rather looks like it is a different color code.

Brutus is a Limited (or was) until I changed it up. Originally, it was exactly like the one in his video…anodized rockers.

I had a friend in high school who had a copper one and his rockers were black.

Thanks. Have you any clue on the hardtop color code?
I also noticed the front grill match the body color on all those Limited. On mine the grill is chrome and so, must have been replaced. An other stuff to find...

Speaking of other stuff to find..... Limiteds have bumper extensions. In the CJ, unlike more recent models, these extensions were made of steel and came with bumpers which have mounting holes for this. These extensions were commonly installed by the factory on export models.

Thank you for these interesting illustrations.

According to the brochure, the Limited's bumper extension is made of plastic. They were on the bumper of my car but not in great condition. The original bumper has been heavily modified to meet French regulations, with the relocation of the yellow indicators and headlights (they become white in 1993) and long range headlight installed where the US indicators were ... ugly!

I had bought steel extensions, with the idea of replacing the plastic one, but as you can see, they are a different shape, longer, not the same curve, and the mounting holes are more widely spaced. We find new extensions for YJ but not sure if they are really the same.
