Default Dark Saddle Vinyl Dye Sheen?

I made some attempts at matching SEM dye to 71 dark saddle but no luck. I'm going to use one of the large Corvette suppliers stock dark saddle dyes. Which one has the correct sheen, I've seen some look too flat or too shiny, not a good look.

What is you guys experience?

Thanks, Kevin

You won't get the right sheen from any rattle can. SEM spray dyes are pretty good; but the sheen is a little flat from them.

I've had good luck with SEM dyes, but only by purchasing custom mixed liquid dye and spraying it with spray equipment or a gas/bottle sprayer. Surprisingly, the PreVal bottle sprayer does a terrific job of spraying on the [thin] SEM dye. Not bad for a $10 sprayer.
