I have to agree. Judging from all of DECstuff I have seen over the years,
it seems like the paintshop used whatever paint and schemes they felt like
on any given day.

Matching paint by eye really is not too hard - just be prepared to waste
some paint if a mix goes wrong, and experiment quite a bit...
