Just thought I'd say thanks; found this list while browsing Jeep sites (I'm more usually on the CJ3B page) but here in England we've started rebuilding a pile of rust that was once a '46 CJ-2A and I wanted to know what color the frame should be. I now have the answer! Yesterday we fitted a new rear crossmember to the frame.

Can anyone recommend an adequate 'rattle can' primer, gloss black and semi-gloss black that would work well for some of the many small parts that require those colors?

Before I get ready to reinstall my engine, I would like to repaint it in the factory rebuilt red. Does anyone know of a rattle-can color that will match?

This list can be very helpful for a fussy restorer. Where did you get this? Is it from Willys literature?

losttribe,
 
We folks here on the page put this list together over 2 years ago from the best information that we had available.  It was a collective effort to record the paint on each part of a Willys.

I beg to differ about the color of the gas cap.  Every vintage photo that shows the cap shows that it was originally black.  Body color caps were most likely the result of repainting and contemporary observations,

Take a look at these Reference Photos.  Every gas cap that is visible is black.

I don't see the transmission or transfer case listed, or the shifter canes, but I assume semi-gloss black? Thanx!

Brake and clutch pedals had a non-skid paint on them: a paint with some kind of gritty stuff in it, for helping keep your feet from sliding off the pedals.  Many has been the time when I wished Ol' Unreliable still had that paint there.  Unhappy

There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Did not know this about the pedals. Makes sense. This might be a good alternative:
 
I used it on my front floors to keep them from rusting. It has a bit of texture and is holding up well.
 
Maybe a local shop can squirt them when they do someone's truck
