Default Ford paint code to “match” Fuel Tech D672

I just ordered Fuel Tech wheels in anthracite. I am taking my side emblems and ovals to a local body shop to have them painted a similar color as the wheels (truck is Oxford White). Do any recent Ford colors seem like a match to this color or should I just ask them to match the wheel? Pic is from member GOOT on his Leadfoot 18.

As screenname indicates, seeing colors and matching them isn’t my strong suit. Seems like Magnetic might be better match than Leadfoot. Is there a grey in recent memory a little lighter than Magnetic?

Since you are having a shop do it, why not let them figure it out?

Anthracite is a common color that can be easily matched. Why do you insist it has to be a Ford body color?

Alternatively you could have the wheels and emblems painted at the same time with whatever Ford color you want.

I just thought if something was a quick referenced match than it would be easy for them and also easy to match future mods like mirror caps or door handles. Also don’t plan to leave truck so didn’t know if that affected their ability to paint match. Wheels getting installed this week so emblems and ovals are being removed and taken to painter next week or so.

Sterling Grey is between but I think it is too light
