Default Automotive Paint for Cowls

NAPA in my area will mix your paint and put it in an aerosol can for you, not cheap though.
You can get a "refillable" spray can at a lot of auto parts stores, just fill with your favorite paint, and pump it up.
Sherwin Williams has good computer matching.
And, finally, if you want to brush rustoleum on, thin it with about 10% thinner, RUN IT THROUGH A PAINT STRAINER/FILTER (even if you just opened the can), and using a GOOD camel hair brush, brush ONLY IN ONE DIRECTION-AWAY FROM THE NEW PAINT. I have painted large fairly flat surfaces this way, and you can not tell whether it was brushed, or sprayed. Also, if you do get a run, sag, or brush marks, use a heat lamp-not to close.
