wouldn't say definitely rock moss....check it against Chelsea blue...it looked pretty spot on to the chip in my ford paint guide...

I wetsanded and polished one of the cross bars....its pretty darn close to your car's color...

Wife and I decided to go with bonnie gray. I'm going to cover an area of the polished cross bar with painters tape to leave a trace of the OEM color under the carpet for comparison when done

Thoughts on this?....this is Dupont (Axalta) paint code DS149 (bonnie gray) that I sprayed on the inside of the firewall compared to original paint I buffed out behind the spare tire mount. Both from same picture in the sun. I just cropped out each part and overlayed them.

Not exact but not horrid either...

Also, they couldn't make the chelsea blue anymore (outdated formula/tints) so they scanned the chip in the ford paint guide and it came out pretty spot on...to some of the green remnants on the body.
