Default 10-20 McCormick Deering color

I'm getting ready to reassemble after 2yrs. and would like to know the color gray that was on a 1927 10-20. I've seen different shades, from med. gray to an almost blue gray. checked different books, but dosn't really tell the color formula. wheels were red, that i know . the gray has me puzzled any help greatly appreciated. Bob.......

Hi NAPA 8711 for the dark gray that is the closest one to the original dark gray.

Iv'e been mixing my own after i painted the first one with dupont years ago. Seems there are as many shades as collectors, sometimes. A long passed friend painted his 10-20 Titan the dark grey, and he told me that was because he remembered seeing the new ones that way. He said so many of them sat in the sun and quickly faded that most folks remembered them as lighter colored. I would go with the Napa color that Farmall Jeff offered, bet he has it close.
