Correct color of bumper and tongue

Does anyone know the correct color for the frame on older Airstreams? I've tried several different 'off the shelf' colors and none look correct.

According to RJ Dial's webpage:

Vintage Airstream

Under "Restored" Condition" it states:

"#13 Tongue and bumper shouldn't have any exposed rust and should be painted silver."

I agree with Shari..
I will say this, I just redid mine..(pictures are posted) and, for the sake of looks I painted mine a slightly darker color than silver.
It goes with the flow line of the under belly's color just perfect.
Plus, this color will enable my Coast to Coast numbers stand out
good luck~
