Does anyone have or know of a source for Moss Green paint to match 1971 Thunderbolt. I'd like to re-paint my badges and was wondering if there is something available "over the counter" so to speak. Thanks in advance.

I’m looking for a good colour match. I have 3 NOS side panel parts (bought from different vendors so unlikely painted originally on the same day)

The original tank I bought off Grandpaul (has beautiful patina) still has the original badges. Ironically it has the 72’ style centre strip which I think might be original as it matches the seat cover pattern. Anyway it still has the original badges also so I will look at the colour and double check it’s the same, it looks a darker version if not black. I’ll have another look in the light tomorrow.
