i have never found one that is an exact match. always looks 'touched up'. an alternative would be to have some mixed to an exact match & put in an aerosol can. i have done that on several projects & it turned out well.

+1  plus it will most likely will produce a very flat finish unlike the original. Red oxide rattle can primers are primers - just that. Not a sealer like the originals so protection would be less also

I was thinking if it was too flat I could hit it w clear satin. It's the axle bumper mount on rear inner wheel house
