Lots of discussion of universal beige in the Luzon Red thread because it is the wheel color for Luzon Red.  I thought it needed its own thread.  The problem seems to me is to find an original sample.  But, since it was only a wheel color as far as I know, the odds of an unblemished 60+ year old rim are slim.

here is the only chip I have found:http://www.cj3a.info/cj3a/farmjeep/beige.jpg

The paint matching computers I have read about require a larger sample, I think.  But, I thought I would take it over to the Lowes paint aisle and compare it to the available color cards.  Then, if I come close, everyone with a Lowes store would have access.

I've found in the past that if you can take a paint sample page to a good
old fashioned parts/paint store AND can work with an experienced paint
mixer he/she can do wonders. Yes, the old codes/numbers aren't valid
anymore, but they can come up with new ones. Worked wonders for us
with Autumn Yellow for instance....

Ok Wheels are at the blaster, I found a good spot of Universal beige on the back of my rim. The blasting guy said he could leave it, hopefully I can get a good match up.

I went to the SM store the other day and tried this, it looked way lighter then the sample on the back of my wheels.

Just to add my findings for this color:

It sure seems to be dead on compared to my paint chips. Powdered surfaces sure clean up nice......
