Doesn't your supplier have different manufacture books with the color samples you can take out in the sun so you can choose your color? The paint code will be with the sample you pick

Late yr model (Dec. 51 BelAir/ 52 trim), with a basically stock 67 Camaro SS350/295hp Turbo Fire Edelbrock 1405, Saginaw 4spd/355 geared 55/6 Chevy rear.2,1st place,and 1 top five award trophies so far

In a perfect world.....I'd just drive the car there.....and they would just scan a panel...and mix from that...BUT...said car...is a dead horse...in the back of my shop.....

That being said....I would take something there to scan....but need figure out something that is good enough to scan....and easy/small enough to remove and take there...

I've used the wiper grille. Easy to get off and easy to carry. If they want something flatter, I have also used the small bracket that bolts to each fender and holds the forward bolt for the hood hinge. One advantage to this piece is it usually hasnt faded the way outside pieces sometimes have.

That was my first thought......but original owner had already done some touch-ups there.....and color is off...

That's part of the reason...I need some correct paint..
