1986 LTD rear caliper rebuild

Hi all
So I am the proud new owner of a LTD. Its been in a collection since the 90's. I am in the long process of bringing her back to the land of the living.
Question for the collective --- After I bead blast the leaking rear caliper does anyone know what paint will match the original ?

Thank you for the help

Have you thought about just giving it a clean?, if its been in a collection, it can be too bad surely

Where are you located bass? We've matched the caliper color with our powder-coat here …. and nearly ready to do a run. If you're in Canada - let me know.

Cheers.

Subscribed... The paint on my LTD's brake callipers is better than the bodywork but I want to repaint the Hayabusa callipers I've got on my 85.
