    Fram Orange, is it Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers?

    Iím getting around to buttoning up my engine after blowing a head gasket on my CJ3B. It occurred to me while I had so much stuff off of it, I should repaint what I can. I sort of feel like a kid putting a model kit together. So, the engine color (for the head) was easy: Ford Engine Red. Rocker arm cover, oil filter cover & bracket and air filter: High Temp Gloss Black.

    So that leaves the Fram oil filter body. What do you think, Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers Orange?

    Now I'm going to have Iron Butterfly playing in the back of my mind. Worse things could happen.

    I think that might be Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane. Iron Butterfly was inagaddadavida. HA, now you will have both songs in your head!

    I use Chevy Engine orange. It is real close.

    Thanks all. I ended up going with Allis. It’s sort of like archeology cleaning the thing up, near as I can tell it’s been painted twice since original.

    I’m just getting it ready as a “Zombie Apocalypse Response Unit” vehicle.
    Various colors is why we called it “Frankenjeep”:
    Neon green, school bus yellow, aqua metallic, primer grey, primer red, chassis black, and now Ford red and Allis-Chalmers Orange, ��

    An UnJeep Color

    Rumor has it that you considered another color scheme for the CJ .....

    "For example, if I suggested we paint the 3B "Tropical Rose" with "Coral Mist" wheels just to get her to go along with it, I'd get stuck with a violet & pink jeep."

    Just don't suggest Teal seatcovers.



    We're a heartless bunch around here, but we understand - a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do .....
