What type of Zolotone to use?

I am restoring a 1964 Safari and want to use the Zolotone paint. I just found out there are two separate companies selling Zolotone paint. Zolotone AIM sells the type which has the black primer and sold to the marine/auto industries as it is
water proof. the problem is their color selection according to their website is very limited. The other company is Master Coating Technologies. They use a white bonding primer and then the paint. The problem is their product is water based and not recommended for contact with water, like in a shower. They have a large
selection of colors.
We are trying to get a light brown color with small color particles.
What is everyone using?

Just found out the Zolotone 20 series product is available in more colors then I had thought. Quest industries has it. Lpooking at the Desert Cameo color.
This has been very confusing.

We used the 20 Series.You can see the documentation of our Zolotone project here. The "exact match" color in the 1964 trailers is no longer available (we used to have a '64 GT) but you can mix "standard" colors to come up with something to match any color scheme you want.
