GIs running the Regimental or Battalion PX wouldn't necessary all have been QM men. The piping on their cap depended on their MOS (Military Occupation Specialty) or even the unit they were part of.

 

A GI running the PX from a Battalion QM Store in an Armored unit could just as well have been wearing Armored (Green/White) piping, but if he had a QM specialty, it could have been QM color.

 

Since you have marked your Jeep as a vehicle from the 2nd QM Bn attached to the 2nd AD, I would suggest you go with QM piping...
