The original Delco gray has a slight bluish tint to it - Quanta (www.quantaproducts.com) has a pretty good match in a rattle-can.

Thanks John,

I bought new ones from D&R,Hugger Performance.They are already a blue-gray color.In my memory of other cars  id seen restored I remember a more dove gray,they didnt look right, but I guess they are.Cool,I guess I just need to pull off the made in china sticker and install.

Chris,

I'll check what I have too.  I remember that Paul Kiel, one of the Bow Tie judges at the Camaro Nationals spent a lot of time researching a correct color.  He did find one that was right on the money.  I will check my notes for you.

Jerry's notes are the same notes that helped me. It is SparVar #S112 Shadow Gray. I had to buy it by the case (6 cans). Let me know if you want a can. I don't need them all.  Sam
