Ok i messed up... HELP!!!!

OK I messed up.
I have been looking for a Radio bezel for the 2002 GT for go long i got it in my head it was parchment (Tan) like the rest of the inside.
I got a good deal on one local one, I took it out, Cleaned it up and Shot it with Desert Tan Coating. Air vents and All.. It looks good. I open the door and BAM! It’s not Tan!!! The door Handle trim, Radio Bezel, shifter Bezel are all a different color. They look more of a Medium / Medium light grey? Not Light grey, but not real dark either
Would anyone know where to look on the car for that code or give me an idea of what color it might be?
When i look on line the only color I can think it is.. would be med. Graphite.
Looks like I’m going to be shooting a few parts but want close to factory.

Any help? I was going to take one part with me to the store and try to match it up but thought I would ask in case someone know the exact Brand of...color name, or number of the paint to look for.

What is worse I think the part was the right color start with. If I try to remove the new coat I think it would mess up the original paint anyway..

Worst case, if you can't find the right color code. Just take all the parts that kinda match and paint them med graphite.

Found the Color.. Any crossover info?

Ok I pulled out the Bezel around the Shifter. I don't feel so bad now. Its not Grey at all.. I looked up the ford code on the bezel. It's called Dark Parchment.
I knew it had brown in it! Anyway I am looking on line and can see where I can order it at 16$ a can. I am going to take it with me to Auto zone and Advanced and Wal-mart to see If I can find a close Match. Wish me luck. I can read this site on my phone so if anyone knows the exact code or what to look for I will keep an eye out on line..
Thanks Guys. When I took pics it looked grey so that's why I didn't post.

Got the color from.. its not the right color!!! GGGrrrr

Well,
Last weekend I found fusion paint off the shelf close match at Walmart. It was a satin called Mocha. I didn't get to the car last Weekend due to other things. So I ordered Dark Parchment from Late Model Restoration.. It got to me on Friday. I was excited to get this done and get it right. . So today I shot it.. its not the right color!!! Its Grey!! Gggrrrr.
They (Late Model Res.) is closed today so I have to wait till Monday to Vent.
I guess I now need to strip off the old paint.. the original Grey/ the Light Tan and now the new Grey.. other wise I think it might flake or chip easier.

Here are the pics for your enjoyment. I sprayed a piece of paper to test next to the original Shifter Bezel. I know when I first sprayed it I had to due a few coats to see it final cover the Tan. Then I was hoping it would cure the right color.

Update. They sent me another can. They did a swatch spray..
Its grey Too! LOL
So I went to a older Auto parts store in town since they were open when I drove buy when I got off work.
I picked up SEM Interior paint. They didn't have the Med Dk. Parchment in stock but they did have a shade close.. I shot the Radio and Shifter Bezel and it looks good...really good.
I will post pictures tomorrow when its all super dry.. I had an extra Dash Gauge bezel and Knee Kick plate so I painted them too. That should help bring it all together. This weekend I may shoot the Door switch bezels to make them all totally match.

Its a well known fact that LRS paints are the completely wrong shade. I'm sorry you didn't ask about this before you bought, multiple ppl on here could have told you... With my 94-98 black interior I had to research from other forums the correct black which is not what LRS sells.

I just hope you prepped it by scrubbing the living **** out of it with Ajax 2 or 3 times then hitting it with SEM cleaner and SEM adhesion promoter before doing multi coats of the color you chose. If not, expect it to flake on you.

Pictures of then new Brown..

Well I sanded it with a green pad BECAUSE when I shot the new coat it bubbled.. I was like WHAT!!
LOL wrong shade nothing! wrong color!
I just shot this with a Clear satin coat tonight.
I shot a few items so they all blend better since it is not the exact color. I may door the Door plastic where the Switches are to tie it all in together.
Here you go guys. Pixs
