What manufacturer/part-number paints can I use for the garnish (its dark gray) and trunk (it had been brush painted) for my 2498?

The color charts '49,'50,'51 (23 & 24) are all the same should be on here. The PAC has them as well as other paints sites.
The one's I've seen are Ditzler (DuPont) lacquer and enamel. Probably won't be able to get factory paint these days. There have been several name changes since then and now Axalta.
Should be able to match, if formula exists.
I think the trunk matches exterior color.

The paint and trim codes should tell you what color/trim it was, but they weren't always punched and didn't survive. So without a build record, need paint forensics, if it wasn't taken to bare metal. A P restorer may help.

PAC has the color and trim info. Also, roster people, but I didn't find them particularly useful in this period.
