paint color

I'm looking for advice on an off the shelf paint color for my 1990 Star ray. it's not colonial white but a kind of very light gray. I don't need a perfect match, just something to spray the water heater door and front rock shield. the previous owner sprayed an off white color that really stands out. I looked at all the spray bombs at home depot the other day and nothing looks close. didn't really want to get something custom made if I could avoid it.

I had the same issue trying to find paint so what I did was remove a tail light and cut a small piece of metal behind the light out (cuts easy with scissors) took it to a paint store they scanned it and made a gallon pretty simple procedure took about 10 minutes. It is an off gray there was nothing out there that matched or even came close.

Thanks for the reply. I had thought of that and I've had paint mixed at the local NAPA with good success. I couldn't find anything to take off to use as a sample, but your suggestion is a good option.

Mainah, We're camping at Eastern Slopes this Memorial Weekend so we'll be in your neck of the woods. I may post a review later if anyone is interested.

I used exterior house paint from HD! Been on there now for about 6 years.
