Help me pick a Gray that matches the original in this 47 Panel.

Im trying to match the Gray in the 47 Panel Truck to an off-the-shelf spray paint. Here is what I found so far, any suggestions are welcome. The sample palette is a piece from the inner fender, sprayed with rusty metal primer, and then the Grays. The picture is in the inside of the cargo area. Two different light sources, and two camera positions. Take into account the variables, lighting, phone camera, editing software, computer monitor, age of original paint, production variations of new paint, etc. Even different eyes see colors differently.

Yeah, the original gray is the background in the picture. There are parts that look good and don't need repainting, so I'm trying to get a color for touch up.

If you are trying to match the gray in the background then my old eyes say #3 as well.

4

To make a light gray color get quart or gallon of white add very small amounts of black and stir it thoroughly until you get a perfect match I do it all the time
