There are many different shades of BRG. There are as many as 4 different Jag BRG shades with the same code. The one Ive found that most closely matches the original early 60's shade is made by BASF and the code is 7414. Its a darker variant as BRG's go. Be aware that different people have differing color recognition perceptions, so mix a small amount of the various shades (variants) spray them and let them dry. Color selection is a royal Pain!!!
