Some time ago I got a paint mix for galvanized metal roofs. I believe it had flat silver and SP lettering gray. Please, does anyone remember the mix?
Unless you want to depict rather recent paint failure, remember that galvanized oxidizes fairly quickly to a dull gray and no longer looks metallic. And since it's surface-treated before painting, it is not shiny even at that point. I just use light gray to show areas of paint failure.
