Man it drives me nuts trying to capture the color. I wish I was a smarter photographer. I try to catch it in some natural light and it makes it appear lighter. I added some Anvil to the toolbox drawer for comparison. To me the anvil looks lighter than it presents in real life too. The Rhino (to me) also has a blue hue to it but on a charcoal base, kind of like the Anvil has a blue hue on a medium gray base. I know describing color is near impossible and very subjective.

It is pretty dark but against the black toolbox it is obviously not black. Standing by itself it might be mistaken for black by a non-obsessive eye.

I just need this color to come out in real life because it is driving me crazy trying to decide if a whole jeep will look good.

Yes it is driving me nuts. The first one is the same Rhino patch but I used an LED work light to provide some illumination because it was dark in my garage. The second is with early morning daylight coming in window (no other illumination).

As much as I have tried to figure out what it will look like I am still uncertain. I am ready to pass the touch up on to a fellow Rhino obsessed Jeeper. If HappyGilmore or Walt or anybody wants it shoot me a PM and I will drop it and the Anvil in the mail. I will let someone else work on the mystery.

This is one of the colors I really like, so I'm following these pictures closely!

Just a thought, maybe take the pictures of test piece next to a Jeep with a common or similar color(maybe Billet, Black, Anvil or GCM) so it could be compared in similar light conditions to something we can all go see in person?
