HI, I love this site, thanks for the great members. I have a 1966 Honda CL77 Scrambler, can anyone please tell me a easy to obtain rattle can spray paint that matches the original grey fuel tank color.
I'm not sure whether the grey on the tank is the same color used on the side cases, etc. For those parts, some use Krylon Dull Aluminum (some use a clear coat over that) I have been using Dupli Color Cast Coat Aluminum engine paint (DE1650). Members here have recommend Dupont IMRON N8075U but I don't know what the equivalent would be in a rattle can. I believe that the original Honda grey was Cloud Silver NH-35 M.
See how my side cases came out with Dupli Color DE1650 at

I used a GM pickup silver on mine, don't remember the exact year. You might look at the touch up paint section in your local parts store. Car touch up paint is packaged in rattle cans these days.

Thanks for the link. I've read that the marine Cloud Silver is slightly different than the original factory color, but I have no way to confirm or deny it. I've also read that Dupli-Color caliper paint is a close match. What I'd like to see is a side-by-side comparison spayed onto, say, a long strip of sheet metal.
