Painted Black Maxx Mounting Pod

I have been wanting to match my mounting pod to the trim panel it is attached to. I was read that the Dupli-Color Textured Metallic Charcoal was close, but I wanted it closer. I painted a base coat of the Dupli-Color Textured Metallic Charcoal and then I decided to lightly "mist" the pod with some charcoal primer I had in the garage. I think it is pretty close now....

I just recently purchased a mount and was wondering where you bought the Dupli-Color paint at? Thanks.

I had to buy it at summit to due to the fact no local store had it. Since the texture of the pod is differant then the texture on the dash i decided to sand the entire pod smooth. Then I painted with duplicolor. Its almost spot on now but i might try the charcoal primer to darken it down slightly.
