Looking for suggestions on what paint to use on my oil pan, engine block and valve covers that closely duplicates the factory colors.

So far the only paint that I’ve found is one from Duplicolor - ceramic engine paint 1611 New Ford Gray which I think would work for the pan and block.

The valve covers on my car were painted from the factory and appear a bit darker with some metallic. Probably matched the color of the stock intake rather than the pan or block. I’ve seen some guys use Duplicolor - ceramic engine paint 1651 Cast Coat Iron for the valve covers, but it’s not an exact match. It appears a bit darker.

What worked for you guys?
