color comfirmation

Hi All, I finally got my rebult power steering pump and have painted it with the "ACCUMATCH" power steering pump color # L-17520 and am quite suprised by the color. It really looks like an Oldsmobile valve cover color, I was expecting something darker. I will attach a photo and hope the color comes thru. Any thoughts on the color would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like the right color, it might be a bit light. The paint is thin and takes a few coats. Marty

Color seems to have varied a bit between batches from a dark blue to a slightly greener version. Both with some or more ;) metallic

Here are a couple of examples - first a NOS one the second one painted with NPDs newest version of the color matched from an original sample

As mentioned your example looks light
