Argosy paint

I want to repaint or touch up the bottom skin and the hitch area of my argosy. The color seems to be a brown or bronze color. Has anyone found a suitable color that matches or comes close to the original color.
Thanks,
Jim

The Dupont code for this metallic brown is 44721-A. I gave this code to my local NAPA store and they crossed it to what they sell and had it mixed and loaded in a spray bomb. It took me 5 spray cans at around $15 a can to do my Argosy all the way around including the bumper and the tongue - 3 coats. I could have had a quart of acrylic enamel mixed and the overall expense with reducer and hardener would have been more plus the hassle of spraying from a gun. Hope this helps. Roger
