Personally, I used a high-temp engine enamel spray can from an automotive store.  The paint has held up well over time (15 years).  I used Chevrolet Orange and some kind of white, can't remember what.

For my '69 and '71 C8's and attachments the closest matches I have found are Rustoleum Lobster Red 250704 (which is a reddish orange) and Rustoleum Canvas White 7789.  A pure white will work but I think the Canvas White is closer to original color.
