Does anyone have any idea what the paint code might be for this blue metal flake paint on my 6.5 KW generator?

It was suggested to me that it might be at least similar to an old Ford engine blue. I haven't bought a can to try yet. Probably not like the original metal flake, but maybe the same shade.

If you can remove a part that has a good sample of the old paint and take it to an automotive paint store, they can easily duplicate it for you.

I took a piece that had very good paint on it to a local high end paint store, but they could not match it because it was curved. Their electronic matching tool needed a flat surface. I then took in the controller cover that was flat, but the paint was slightly faded. So, they ended up matching it by hand. I think it is pretty close, but it is not quite as easy as taking it in and getting a match. I would share a code, but they did not match it to any code.
