I had local auto parts “shoot” my dash with a camera and then mix up the correct color. Perfect match. Doesn’t help much if you can’t drive it.

The car is primered now, he had a local shop mix him a batch that looked strikingly different from what he told them he needed. I'll have him get ahold of National Coating. Thanks guys

The color mixed up via my data plate did not look close however the color mixed using the “camera” was spot on!

When a paint "system" is retired the chemistry involved no longer exists so you may never get exactly what you were after no matter if your using a color spectrometer or other devices. Cay Coral on 58 Chevy's is an example of a color that is VERY difficult to get correct. Most modern paint systems cannot even come close no matter how much you try to adjust the formulas.
