    Dark BRG paint?

    IN the process of body repair work and while the shroud is off want to paint the various "bits" that are body color. THis is not a frame off restoration rather a rolling resto. Does anyone know both the code for the very dark, I believe Jaguar BRG, and an online supplier for it? ANy help would be great, Thanks

    I used these guys for my "bits". I ordered it in spray cans (healey blue) for parts that would be too much of a hassle (and tedious) for the painter to deal with.

    I also used them with spray cans for my Porsche 914. I wanted to touch up the scratches in the trunks without completely disassembling them for a proper full paint. The match was spot on.

    I've used them too. They color matched my 15 year-old Mercury Villager perfectly.
