r, g, and b are the RGB values for the colour. You'll need to set them to whatever colour you need

I understand that, I think it's referring to how i'm calling the custom color. Normally I would use Color.white. Right now I'm trying to use g.customColor. I'm assuming the g in customColor is what it's referring to. I've already modified the values for RGB. Thanks for your help!
