oem paint color. and what do you think?

hey guys, i finally got my bb on yesterday, and i was over my jeep today, but the trim/cladding bugs me. I herculined everything below the top grey section on my laredo trim, and it looks pretty good, but when the sun shines bright on it, it doesn't look so clean. my dad suggested giving it a new coat of grey. but i think i want to go for a limited trim look and give the remaining grey a few coats of my oem green (i'm not quite sure at the specific term for the color).

i think that replacing the grey with oem green, but leaving the black laredo strip would look good. so two questions, what do you think about it? and, where do I find oem paint like that?

here are some pics for reference.

btw, i would also use the oem green on the gutter guard i put behind my grille. (the hunter green in there right now has to much blue in it)

i think the green with the grey stripe would look pretty slick. definitely unique!

well, i herculined my bumper trim and side skirts. but i only herculined the lower 2/3. i left the top part stock grey, with the black strip. i want to paint the grey part to match the paint on the rest of my zj. and i am wondering if any of you know where i can order special oem paint like that.

My local Napa mixed the oem color for my WJ and put it in a spray can.
The quality of the paint was exceptional and it laid down nice too, much better than Krylon.

I hear that some paint shops can mix up a bomb can too. Just mask off where you arent painting so you dont get any ugly overspray.
