What do you plan to do with it when done?  Keep it nice and pretty for show or use it and get it dirty and scratched?

Doesn't Sears have a touch-up paint?  Spray cans at least?  How about Searsparts.com and see if available to order? Might have to buy qts. if offered. Look in the parts manuals, say where they show the decals?  Contact AYP or whomever made them?

That's an Agco paint code, but can be crossed at any decent paint shop.  I read that the PPG code cross is 31991.  

These are the rims on Craig's Massey 1650 & grill painted "Silver Mist".  Notice the light angle makes the grill look brighter.  The wheels are the same depending on light.  This is a metallic paint with very fine metallic.
