Opinion Wanted - Is this trim color a good match?

I used Rustoleum Sail Blue. I like the look but is this a good match for the original color? Is it dark enough?

it may be a little lighter than factory spec, but it looks great. I would leave it alone.

I just used the Sail Blue on my emblems and it just seems to pop a little more.Unless there is another stream right next to it, there won't appear to be a difference.Even then it is so close you won't notice.I like it.

"Rustoleum brand Royal Blue" and "Ford Blue" are the two colours I've noticed people using here.

Hard to tell from a photo of course, but your taillight lines look good to me!

Both colors "huff" the same. I'd use either one.

Mike,

I used Rustoleum Royal Blue as recommended by another thread, very close to the original. As for your color I agree with others, looks good as done.
