When comparing a repainted part to my wife’s original paint car it looks like a good match. I got a color sample from Kolor Korect and my body guy also matched it to an original chip. Both come up with this exact color. Supposedly the original paint had this much metallic in it but you can’t hardly see it now without looking really close. Her car has faded pretty bad but it is also 58 year old paint. In most light the color matches really well but in other light it is way off. Right or wrong, I am happy with it. The base clear is for sure not correct but I am happy with that also.
