Interlux Brightside Paint Colors

For my E350 Camper Project I have found a high top to purchase. It needs a little fiberglass work and of course, new paint.

I have read of Interlux Brightside paint for fiberglass tops and am wondering if anyone here has already discovered which color white matches the 2012 White paint Ford uses?

From the internet color charts I'm guessing the Blu Glo White will be the closest match. My other thought is to go with the lightest grey they have and not even try to match the van.

Any other thoughts for painting the refurbished top?

Thanks for the reply. But I was thinking to use a premixed color from Interlux, not have one custom mixed. But you do make me wonder if Interlux has a tintable base so I could get a perfect match.

Huh?
With the paint code you will get a perfect match, there is no guessing.
Code YZ, M6466 is all you need.

I'm working with some Brightside as we speak. On a boat, however. You'll just have to get as close as possible. An auto paint store might try to tint Marathon White for you.
For what it's worth Aquarius Sail Inc. who makes the current version of my boat (SuperCat15) paints with automotive acrylic these days.

Yeah, I may go ahead and have some automotive paint mixed to the paint code, but that Brightside Boat paint seems so forgiving.
