Archive X paint help

So after deciding on Archive X route with paints and Rafal stencils I've been trying to match the grey Archive X colours with the stencils. So I have 5 different Grey's
1975 Sp lark dk grey
1975 Sp lark Lt grey
1975 Reefer grey Lt
1975 Sp lettering grey
Dark Grime

So I think I've matched Reefer grey to 1975 Sp lark dk grey

Base grey to 1975 Sp lettering grey

Now for the concrete I'm really not sure at all???
I've looked at a lot of other people's paint ups which has made things worse. All the concrete colours on other people's paint ups seem to look beige to me. To the point that I think I might be slightly colour blind.
I think what I'm asking is what Archive X colour replaces other paint schemes??

the “concrete” on the back is archive x “dark grime”

Amazing thank you.
Would you say I have the other colours right?
The Lark dk grey replaces Reefer grey?
Base grey would be lettering grey?
You got it. I don’t know that SP Lettering Grey is 100% confirmed as the base layer but it looks good, I added a touch of blue to mine. Do a test swatch next to some silver to see if you like it as is or want to tweak it.
 
Here’s the colours I used for my most recent helmet.


Dome and lower cheeks Light Green and Grime 50:50ish, tape pull was same but with more Grime. SP Dark Lark for main grey and greenish grey parts SP Lettering Grey

Visor/Mandible/Keyslots D&H Caboose, SP Dark Lark, Maroon mixed 50:50 Engine Black. Greenish grey parts done with SP Lettering Grey.

Upper Cheeks were painted D&H Caboose first then Grimy Black. Grey is SP Dark Lark.

Right Ear Earth Lt, SP Dark Lark, Engine Black and Tamiya White Primer

Left Ear Coach Green first, then Light Green. Lighter grey is ANH DS Surface Grey and Red is Caboose. Spatter is Rust. White for decal/graphic is Tamiya primer.

Killstripes SP Armour Yellow with gradient to Mixture of SP Armour Yellow and Rust.

Rear panels main green is Engine Black and Dark Green 50:50. Then Dark Grime, SP Dark Lark and SP Lettering Grey for greenish grey parts.
