Can I mix various Quanta brand paints?

Happy 4th of July! I'm getting ready to paint the frame on my 70 GTO. Factory perfection is not essential but I want the frame to look factory-ish. I had planned on using my leftover Quanta medium black from another car project but I just realized I don't have enough. But what I do have is a quart of flat black and a quart of gloss black. If I'm looking for something close to the Quanta brand medium black (basically chassis black) can I just mix 1/3 medium black with 1/3 flat and 1/3 gloss? Will that get me close? Is medium black just 1/2 gloss and 1/2 flat? I'm guessing other than the gloss factor these paints are all chemically compatible, correct? Thanks for your help.

I am not familiar with this brand. If, when you look up technical data for the three product numbers in question, they all take you to the same document... cocktail away. It is not uncommon to "tune" gloss level in this manner using compatible paints.
