Does anyone know if the Interlux Brightside color Matterhorn White is the same color as CAT Matterhorn White? I assumed it was and ordered a quart from Defender, but the color label on the can looks like it has a fair bit of grey in it. The can is really sealed well, plus I'm nowhere near my boat. I don't want to open the can and check because I'd have to remove the seals and not sure I can return it. Thanks!
I doubt you will be able to tell without opening and applying it. My boat has a fair amount of Matterhorn White, and while the paint does look a bit grayish in the can, once applied it looks white. In fact, you can hardy tell the difference between Matterhorn White and Snow White in the sun even though they look quite different in the can.
