Correct Gray/Green color for Durant/Star engines

Took my bell housing with the original Gray/Green paint used on Durants and Stars to my local PPG automotive paint dealer. they computer matched the color perfectly and now has the formula/code on record for anyone that wants to have the authentic color used. I purchased a high quality PPG DCC Urethane Enamel and intend to clean the engine and put a coat of PPG self etching primer on the engine first then this as a top coat. It appears shiny at first but as the engine is run and heats up the color will dull down a bit. A well known automotive restorer uses this paint and has had great results with it. I dealt with the manager Mark Pataky, at mpataky@bensps.com and he has it listed under my name for future reference.
