Paint for Hitch and Rear Bumper Top

Can anyone recommend the correct paint color to match the dark gray for the hitch and the rear bumper top for the Classic? I prefer a spray can. is this usually carried at any Airstream dealership?

I've searched the forums and Out of Doors Mart has a 12oz can but at $18 and then $11 shipping I'm looking to see if there is another source.

Thanks

Kelvin

I live close to ODM and have bought a couple of spray cans from them to do touch up work. (I have a can in front of me right now.) I don't think you can possibly match this stuff. It's made especially for Airstream. "360260-100 Pewter Gray" It even has "AIRSTREAM" on the back of the can.

The Airstream color is Pewter Gray part number 360260-100. It's very expensive...$23 at my local Airstream Dealer, and it's a close but not a perfect match on my 2005. Sears used to make a spray paint, I think it was called Tool Box Gray, that was a great match, but I've been unable to find it anymore. I did some testing with some other paints but was unable to find a good match. I finally bit the bullet and bought the Airstream paint...sigh....

AS Can Spray Paint:
1. Very expensive!
2. I've found over the years spray can paint doesn't hold up nearly as well as high quality can paint on my trailers (have eight) and equipment.
Why not go to Dunn Edwards and have them match the color with high quality gallon of paint - same price for a gallon as for your AS spray can paint, and will last a lot longer longer.
You can either brush, roll or spray it on.
Spray cans are easy - I use them on non-important things when I'm lazy, but not when rust is in involved on frame, etc.
Also always use an undercoater - waste of time and paint if you don't.
