Default I've been getting some needing painting in

Yesterday I sanded and scraped rust, primered ,painted and clear coated some bad areas under my passenger side door. Today I sanded and repainted me rear spoiler. Looks nice. Once thing I found out that Gm had my paint listed as lt. woodrift, and the actual perfect match was chrysler Champaign pearl. Thats was kinda strange.

I bought woodrift. They still sell it. It was too dark. The chrysler champaign perl color was as close as I could ever get to the factory paint
