Default Silver Paint for Maytag

I know that some of the maytag cylinder jugs were painted silver. Anyone have the correct silver color on hand or know of the correct color. I am looking to find it in a small quanity and just rattle can that part of it. It was a bright silver paint with small flecks in it from what mine looked versus some of the silvers that are just the tint.

Think originally had no flakes in the silver. The Rustoleum silver should be fairly close but get the heat tolerant version or any silver engine paint in a "rattle" can will do I would think.

BEFORE you paint your engine - TEST the paint with gas to check for gasoline resistance first! Nothing like doing a great paint job, only to fine that gas takes off the paint better than paint remover! Been there, Done that!
