A/C Shroud Cover Color

I just received my new air conditioner shroud cover from Andy at Inland. I want to paint it to match the color of the blue trim that was at the bottom of my trailer. The original (faded) shroud was blue as well. It's faded to a very light blue now.

Does anyone know what color I should ask for at the auto paint store or vendor I choose to paint it for me?

My original shroud (from 1978) is white, and always has been, near as I can tell. You could always take a second mortgage on your house, trundle down to your friendly Airstream dealer and buy a foot of Airstream blue trim to match up, I guess.

Take a good high res photo of the color you want and take it down to Lowes or a real paint only store. They can computer match. Keep in mind that it is virtually impossible to match old faded paint perfectly.
