Default color code for the metallic grey trim parts?

Another question (see what happens when I get a weekend to mess around with the car and not have to go watch 6 travel baseball games!) not sure if its how it came from the factory, but the trim around the windows, around the mirrors, bottom of windshield is a metallic grey color. is there an official "color code" for it?

lvrpool32, the color you are referring to is Dorchester gray, code 342. I found a great match from Automotivetouchup.com. After a thorough sanding, priming, paint, then clear, the results speak for themselves. Makes for a good weekend project.

mirror cover, mirror mount, and window trim all repainted, paint from automotivetouchup.com

Cheers, BK

FWIW: I used a very slightly darker Duplicolor/clearcoat that to avoid confusion, I will not mention its numbers, but if I were to do again, I would color sand my orange peel out.
