    Default how do i know which colour grey my dash is?

    Bought a double din fasia from connects which turns out to be more black than grey, but autoleads offer 3 different greys and have no idea how to make sure i get the right one? They do gunmetal grey, charcoal grey, and dark grey?? Any ideas guys?

    Heres a pic of the dash, but the surround i bought from connects2 was meant to be charcoal but as you can see the surround is some what darker, not sure where to go from here.

    Its defo either gun metal or dark grey, whats your bet?

    Charcoal and Metallic charcoal are listed as two different colours by most surround suppliers.

    Got a tip off a mate who fits ICE systems.He said that a lot of surrounds are sprayed the correct colour with an a can of spray paint before fitting,if the colour can't be matched off the shelf. FELIXX.

    that surround dont look too bad to me, I know its different from the dash colour but it brings the lighter grey of the dash and the black of the head unit together nicely.
