What color top/etc. with a copper brown met. body/

Wavering between black, spice, and tan for seat covers, soft top, etc.. but know that some things just don't exist in all colors for my 1983! Is there a site or can anyone post some pics of their copper brown CJ7 and the different colors they have on the soft stuff?
I did google images and had a few hits but nothing great to compare too...
Also will be going with a YJ family bar to get the bikini top over the back area..

The factory color option for my 1983 scrambler was nutmeg. It is no longer made and looks different than spice or tan. My vote would be the black denim. Good luck.

Just passed a jeep and hour ago, that exact color. Had tube fenders on it, with the same wheels you have. Had a black top, it looked awesome!!

Probably will end up going black everything ...... I have the nutmeg front and rear seats (those are black seat covers) but YJ roll bar padding, safari type top, etc. will only be in the spice, tan or, black I think...
Then the seats will not match well as CJ seat covers are not in spice or tan as far as I know...

I always liked the look of a white hardtop on a copper Jeep.

I have that color on mine with a white soft top when I bought it back in 89. Looked hideous. It was the first thing I changed.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.

Anyone with a copper brown metallic CJ with a spice or black safari bikini? The longer one that fits on the YJ family bar...

I'd say spice. Pictured is what my 85 looked like with Honey interior. Honey is hard to find, but I have spice seatcovers and Supertop on it now and it's a close enough match for my tastes.

Edited to add, unfortunately NOT my Jeep in that top picture. It's a VERY sweet rebuild a guy's doing on another forum. My tan/almond beige Jeep looked just like that when I bought it back in 93

I vote for nutmeg first, but if you can't find that, then black. The original color of the renegade black high back seats were actually a dark charcoal denim style vinyl with black piping. It depends on how OEM you want it to look. The above "nice" build of the renegade, although nice is not accurate. The chrome wheels are laredo. The Renegade came with white wagon wheels and you could get the chrome caps as an upgrade within the Renegade trim. What that could help with is the color for the hardtop. It would look amazing and accurate with the white wheels and a white top and the body decala. Mine is a metallic copper with a matte clear coat. All accents are semi gloss black powder coated with OEM black/charcoal interior seats. No top and body decals as of yet but will be in the near future. The white really pops!

Here's a good example that is pretty close to your set up. this is where I'll be in about 3 months with the add of the body decals.
