AS Grey Paint 2015 FC Behind & Below Rear Bumper

We have a 2015 27FB FC that has some rust on grey painted section behind the rear chrome bumper.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for exact match paint for touch up?

Thanks,

Glenn

From another post:

"The color is Pewter Gray we sell at our online store Airstream, Inc :: Home Part number 360260-100. "

Also: http://odmrv.com/catalog/index.php?m...roducts_id=188

Personally, I used found a close match of Rust-oleum at Home Depot. It looks fine. That's why they switched to black - so it's easier for folks to touchup the frame as needed.

It is not an absolute perfect match, but very, very close. Also, since the paint was 14 years old, I basically lightly sanded even the areas that weren't rusty so I could do a light coat on the entire tongue so I didn't have to worry about blending. Before and After closer up below...
I'll be doing similar on the rear bumper this summer.

If you want a perfect match just order from the mothership. A little pricey though.

I go around the camper and give any metal that looks a little bare or corroded a shot of VHT a couple times a year.

It goes on clear so it's basically invisible on any metal that it does not convert to black and I don't worry about a little over-spray. It works well on the frame, stabilizers, steps, axle mounts, hitch components, etc.

Just search for this from your favorite store: VHT SP229 Rust Convertor
