DuPont computer scan of the inside of my glovebox door shows the closest current match to be a 2000 Nissan underhood color Gray-Taupe.
Code M6012K Alternate CF01.

I pulled the DuPont chipsheet and the match is about as perfect as you can get. For the mid-gloss finish, use the M6012JV formula with the 305S flatener. For a nearly flat finish use 304S flatener.

If your paint jobber is not DuPont, they should be able to mix your color from their manufacturer's database.

I took my paint guys a piece of the window trim and they scanned the inside of one where the paint had been covered since new. Mixed it per what their scanner told them and it's as good as I care to have.:D
Honestly, it's a sorta dowdy color and I wrestled with just painting it whatever color I liked. But I went with it in the end anyway. Since the car will have a stock appearance on the inside, that tipped the scale towards Loma.[:I]

Miscreant at large.
