This was a hard color to match!

We have had this jeep in our shop for a few weeks now, it was a front end hit that we repaired, and the guy had bought a set of full doors he has us paint along with it. I forget the factory name for this color, but we had to make test panel, after test panel, to get a good color for this thing, and it still wasnt dead on, so we ended up having to blend into the tub.
This was one of the hardest colors to get a good match for I have ever dealt with.

It looks like when you blended the colors it turned it into a whole different color (Jeep).

When you have a choice, buy American.
