I used the dome light for color match on my 05 (gray) I just popped it off and then reinstalled after the paint shop was done. I also have a friend that went to a auto paint store and bought a pint and used his air brush set-up and it came out nice. If push comes to shove I know that this can be found at Pep Boys (or any auto parts stores that sell spray paint) New Ford Gray No# 216 Engine Enamel is a very close match to the gray.
Not to try to tell you what to do etc but painting it yourself is really very easy and you have touch up in you make a slip during the final install too. FYI VHT no longer makes and of the paints and they onyl made one color of the tan and one of the gray while Ford actually has 4 tans and 3 grays. We have them custom mixed in a Plasti Cote brand spray can and have all 5 correct colors in stock. They are considerably more costly but still less than buying two cans from Ford that usually spit paint vs spraying it etc. Just wanted you and the members ship to know etc.
