It could be different for different shades of paint but on my silver mustang it's a very light gray from what I can see under tiny chips caused by road debris.

Ours are close in color, so that's a start, thanks.

Generally speaking the primer used needs to contrast with the paint that is being applied on top. For example, black primer is used for white cars and white primer is used for black cars.

So if I am color matching an aftermarket bumper, that comes unpainted in black urethane, a light gray flexible primer should be fine?
