NYC passenger car dark gray paint shade for roof

It doubtful that you would find an exact match for a manufacturers color as they use formulations that come from the Orient and may or may not match a commercially available paint.  There is also variation depending on the run.  Colors tend to drift, especially depending on what exact factory it came from.

 What kind of paint are you looking for?  Bottled paint or rattle can?  With Bottled paint, you can get a color that is close and then add drops of other others to the mix to get it to be a close match.  It is tedious but it does work.  You might start with Pullman Dark Gray or NYC Dark Gray from Tru-Color paints and see how close it is and go from there.

Good Luck!
