The classic trick is to simply match a panel you have. For a good sample
of the "correct" (sic) color (colour) is to remove an escutcheon, or
flip a panel over, etc, to find paint that hasn't been exposed to
sunlight and/or coffee and match that.

Or squirt the whole thing wrinkle black. Everything looks good in
wrinkle black. No exceptions.

PS: You can get aerosol wrinkle black paint from www.eastwoodco.com.
Works great.
