What Color is my Car? (Seriously)

I was told it was 2003 Cobra Dark Shadow Gray. Which is what I believed it was. So I got CX touch up paint. But the spot I touched up looks almost black to me compaired to the car color.

Color Codes - Ford model/year code CX Cross-Reference

If the car has been repainted to something from another year, I don't think anyone out here is going to be able to tell you exactly what color it is. With all the different devices and monitors people are using, as well as settings of each, you would only be getting guesses. In person by a quality paint person is your best bet.

I agree that it is. The touch up paint i got looks almost black.... guess I actaully have to go somewhere and talk to someone. I prefer to not talk to people unless I have to. I google and do everything myself.

....or maybe the touch up paint I got is bad or wrong

A reputable paint dealer will have paint chips that they can lay on your car to properly match it.

How about the color is I don't know with a touch of not factory for a Fox Body. In all seriousness it's been repainted so find a good paint/auto body shop and get them to help you match the color. I will say whatever color it is I do like it.

I could even be a non Ford color or even a custom mixed color or even a poorly mixed color. It will be so very hard to tell exactly what you have.

Wasn't this car for sale on ebay recently? If that's the car I remember the guy saying it was Ford Dark Shadow Gray. Great color btw. I flew to Detroit for a guy and drove home a 2004 Saleen S281. Dark Shadow Gray. Great color.
