question about modern paint match

Has anybody had any luck matching paints from 1941/1942? I'm looking for a modern paint equivalent for the colors of Silver French Gray Metallic and Puritan Gray Metallic. And what type of paint did you use? Single or double stage? Thanks

You can buy a set of colour chips on eBay. Right now there is one which features your colour combination. Chips need to be in good condition (not faded) and it should have the formula there. If not, you can go to Dupont to get it.
As for modern material, I used 2-stage Mercedes paint.

If paint chips ever matched (not a sure thing)) they are unlikely to now. Old formulae are not terribly useful, unless a company has already done the pigment translations.

Plastikote 1534 Light Smoke Metallic is a very good match to this color on my car BUT it was painted once before I owned it so I cannot say how close to original this is
