I went to Herb's and got their Mopar Green. I used their adhesion promoter and then just followed the directions on the can. Herb's Parts: HERBS PARTS INTERIOR PAINT, Interior Paint, PAINT

I got a set of 4 armrests for $55 including shipping. Add the cost of the paint and I'm at $107 for 4 green arm rests. Sure beats paying $100 for ONE green armrest from those jokers on ebay.

Hey, those turned out nice. How is the color match? Hard to tell by comparing to your other photos but looks to be as close as original interior pieces ever matched anyways.

20230406_160502 (1).jpgThe color match is good enough for government work. Or at least good enough that I'd rather have the $300 in my pocket than on the doors of an unpopular car.

Check local automotive paint shops too, a lot of them can mix up spray cans of interior paint. We did the same thing years ago when a buddy of mine needed a new arm rest but couldn't find the right color.
