Duplicolor "DS100" and Ford's "UA" Black. ..does it match?

I want to paint a few small pieces on my 07 Fusion, including the black plastic fog light bezels.
Duplicolor only lists DS100 as the correct match for my UA paint code. However, Duplicolor calls the color "Universal Black". Im thinking they use the same color for several auto manufacturers.
Has anyone used this color on there UA car? Is it a good match?

I've got some laying about. It's acceptable, but not for big areas. I more or less globbed it on a small scratch and immediately wiped off the parts that were on actual paint -- tried to only keep the touchup IN the scratch.

Think it would be very noticeable on my fog light bezels?

Im surprised actually. Ford's UA Black has been around for many years. Why wouldnt they make an ecact match?

Your bezels are painted? Mine are unpainted ABS plastic...

If those are what you mean, they don't take paint very well, and their texture doesn't look the greatest with glossy paint.

I'm sorry, I thought we were talking about scratch repair. Didn't read close enough.

Yes I was referring to painting my bezels. I may sand them smooth and spray them. Just not sure if the paint matches
