    My Breakdown came with a missing paint ap on one the shoulders, the ap missing is the dark gray from he portion that forms part of the bumper. Any idea on a close shade of paint to use to match the rest of the gray?

    Well I don’t know if this helps… this is a program that I’ve used in the past for direct color matching & dying of plastic. A good digital camera is all that you should need with this program

    This is also a nifty little free web program when after you plug in you plug in the color that you want to copy (you can get the color ID code in any art program), & this shows various combinations when looking for a color match. Has come in handy with paints & dyes. I hope that this helps!
