I need some guidance on where to find matched paint for the pillar pod on a 97 with the grey interior. I have a set of gauges to install for someone here in the near future.

The grey for the 94-97 is Medium Opal. That's Ford's official name.

I've gotten to the point recently with my various pickup interior projects, that I have to take a panel in and have them try mixtures until they get it to match perfectly. Most of the time it seems that if they mix it like the "official" book tells them, the color isn't even close. So it's trial and error to get it right. Sometimes it is right the first time, sometimes it takes them several days. They've realized by now I don't settle for "oh, that's close enough". If it doesn't look like Ford made it years ago, then it ain't good enough.
