Help finding charcoal/ black bumper paint for XL/ Work Trucks

Hey all, so I "messed up" the bumper on my 08 XL super duty. My body man and I are having trouble finding the correct low gloss black/ charcoal paint for it. Any ideas? All the spray cans I get from the local auto body supply store are too "flat" and primery.

This is true. Your body shop will need to mix the base color which is in their intermix system book, then tint the color base, or clearcoat to a percentage of gloss using a flattening agent. It will require multiple attempts to get the exact gloss required on a spray out card.

Usually about 60% gloss is about right for those however.
