I really like that color, if you don't mind me asking who painted it for you? I'm in Orlando, and the guy that painted my last restoration (see below) hasn't been very responsive, and the guy I had lined up to do the scrambler has kind of flaked out on me.
It's hard to tell with the light, but the other two examples look a little lighter than the Dark Brown Metallic, do you think?
I had it painted by my father’s friend who has a shop. It’s called Interstate Customs in Sarasota FL, not the best work but not bad. I think he slacked a little because I’m a family friend. The Laredo decals throw the whole color off, but any decal makes a color look different.
I agree that that is an 85/86 decal package, but I got a single message from another site that someone stated with confidence they knew the jeeps and they were repainted 1976 H4 Dark Cocoa Metallic. Here a a couple of pics with a portion of my hood painted with H4 touch up paint, with the nutmeg door appliqué and interior door panel for contrast. I think the 5e might be darker than those jeeps.
I know this is a long shot... but I found the owner of this scrambler... JeepHead Scrambler registry... On a MacBook computer hit Command F and search for Claus Langrock, Berlin.
Does anyone know Claus Langrock form Berlin?
You are 1000% correct.... I did some research and I found the color of the jeeps in post #2. As you said that is 1985/86 5E Dark Brown Metallic. The painter offered to mix up a small batch to test and see if I liked it. It's a dead match.
