Bottom paint

So, I got the front end of my 'Ol 86 Sliver Bullet apart and thinking about repainting the bottom before I put it back together. Is there a right 'gray' paint color? Or is it a match it if you can.

Take a sample to any automotive paint and auto body supply store and they should be able to make the exact color in any type of paint that they supply.

DupliColor T183W gray works well on my Excella. Available from Wal-Mart automotive section for a couple of dollars.

A-frame or tongue gray paint identified

Although I wouldn't do it again using Airstream's product (way too expensive at $22 for a 12-oz spray can), I touched-up my A-frame. The color is identified as Pewter Gray 360260-100. This may not be the color you are looking for as mine is a 2005 and we are talking different body parts.
