Re: Anyone know this color?

First off a color from a photo is REALLY hard to come up with, one photo will look totally different than another. What you need to do is take a part of the truck down to the local paint store and they can figure it out. They have a "camera" they can shoot it with or simply color chips. I can't recommend enough, do not buy all your paint when you get that color info, get a quart or even a pint and spray out a test panel of your own, a large one, an old fender or something to BE SURE it is the color you want. After you do that, buy your couple of gallons to do the truck.
