Would anyone be able to offer some help with this, I’m trying to figure out what the best paint code would be to replicate (to an extent) the 2016/17 Aston Martin Vantage GTE racer onto the 2006 DBR9 GT1 car.
I can’t quite get the balance right between grey/green
This is what I am trying to replicate. The colour varies so much depending on lighting, angle, weather
And this is where I’m at right now, racing in the FMIC GT Series
Or more of a green colouring to it
Any help would be much appreciated.
Here you go, I put the image in Photoshop and came up with HSB value of H 132, S 13, B 31
You can do the conversion using the link below:

Hope that helps!
Thanks Bob, I read through that thread last night and had a play around with the colour settings. I found going from paint booth to the track gave a massive difference in brightness, so I made the car much lighter than it ought to look once on the home space to how I wanted it to look then it went darker once out on the track.
The colour guide by CHRIS HILL proved to work quite well, although not 100% accurate it gave a good direction in which colours to use.
Here’s what I opted for in the end, still perhaps a shade too dark but I can adjust that with the saturation/brightness ratios
Two tone semi gloss
X base colour
