Paint match Q

Hi All,

I went by my local PPG dealer (Tasco) and took a painted radiator support panel with me so they could check it against the color code I was given. The car was allegedly painted a 1998 Range Rover "Charleston Green Metallic", code 610-HET #48180 and it seemed to be a close match to the tiny chip in their books. When they put the color gun on it, it only came back a 35% match and was closer to a Nissan color. The car was painted several "owners" ago and I have not been in direct contact with him, but going through one of his friends who was an intermediate "owner". Should I be worried or just go with the 48180? This would be for interior trim and engine compartment...

TIA!

Russ
