confused about wheel colors

[ The Old CJ2A Page Message Archive ]

I have a 1946 that was originally Harvest Tan with orange wheels. They look like pumpkin orange with a black pinstripe. According to a post on this page a while back from Todd Paisley, showing willys colors and the wheel color, that orange would be sunset yellow. Then I got a copy of a page of 1948 Willys colors from Nason Automotive colors, sent to me from Beachwood Canvas. It shows Sunset Red as a real red color and a pumpkin orange color listed as Autunm Yellow. I want to have one of my Jeeps painted Pasture Green with Autunm Yellow wheels. Is that the orange color that I have already on my wheels or is it a real yellow? The other Jeep I want to paint Normandy Blue with Sunset Red wheels and I need to find out if Sunset Red is truly a red or is that the orange that I have from my original Harvest Tan 1946 Jeep? Plus I would appreciate knowing how to mix these four colors with modern codes. Have I gotten everyone as confused as I am know? Please help
