Question Stover CT color Guessing?

I have a Stover CT-2 that I just started restoring. I have found a few Color mixes off the net. Ditzler GS188 and a mix of Dulux Brewster Green, Super Black & Brown.
I have a CT-1 that is dark green that has been repainted. I beleive this CT-2 is original color but is almost a lighter leaf green. Lighter than the CT-1 It also has remains of a orangeish yellow on the rim of the flywheels and area around the lettering that is painted over the green.

I have called several paint supplies with the Ditzler and Dulux color numbers and around here they haven't heard of them colors. I understand PPG bought Ditzler and ICI bought Dulux but neither dealers have been any help.

So anyone know what the right color is and what they would call it today?

Dulux enamel was a brand of dupont I believe it has been discontinued. We havent had any luck finding anyone that has brewster green.. In the archives I believe there are some recommedations for some rattle cans that are close to the ct color.BobRR

I just found some original paint on the bottom of a bearing block that has never seen the sun on my Stover # 42 grain mill. It seems the same as one of the layers I stripped off on the CT2 we are restoring. The local Benjamin Moore paint store said they can match the color with their oil base enamel.
Next I'm going to try the Napa store and see if they can match and mix the color in an automotive paint.
I'll post my results later.
