Found this after a search:
< Anthracite Grey, code 176, was not the original bumper colour. Odoardo Grey, Code 223, is the original bumper/aero panel colour. This was confirmed by matching test cards from PPG and Dupont against two original aero kit panels. The match is perfect. >
FWIW, SEM does not offer these colors in their Bumper Coater series. If you wish to use either of these colors, it will have to be mixed as a base coat with plasticizer added, etc. and once done, if you need to re-coat for any reason, getting more in the exact same color mix will be difficult if you have run out.
The 39273 Charcoal Metallic is nearly imperceptible from the original color, works really well, lasts for years and is easy to re-coat if needed. Plus SEM keeps it in stock (so far) and most body shop paint dealers either have it in spray cans on their shelves or can order it for you as well as on-line sources. I have done several sets of SPG panels and bumpers and when prepped with detail to eliminate scratches, etc., they look great. Personally, I would not use anything else.
