Screens, and the like (projectors etc), use a different color theory from pigments such as
paint. One is additive color theory, the other is subtractive. You will be hard pressed to
find a match between the two.
I?ll forward you and Al a photo showing the 7690 pantone chip places on my IMSAI case as a
side by side comparison. Color-wise, it?s almost a perfect match.

Exactly. I'm talking with a couple of local (to me) paint shops.
They all have high tech color scanning and can scan my good chassis
for the color. The debate over whether the texture was accomplished
by some kind of powder coating or air brushing is the big thing. The
original documentation talks about "IBM Blue" which is also a pantone
color. Neither look "right" to me... on my computer screen anyway.
I have not seen an actual paint chip.
