Glad we could help Russ, I'm fairly confident that you'll be able to find a color chip that's going to help you out. Being that it's a metallic color, look at the chip in the sunlight (if possible) and check the color straight on and at a 45 degree angle. This way you can also check the color on what's known in the industry as the "flip". Different metallic's have different effect on the color when it's looked at from different angles. If all looks well but it's just a little darker or a little lighter, not to worry, that can be compensated for by using more air pressure to lighten the color or less air pressure to darken the color.

Hope this helps.
