What Tone White for Halli S-41W?

Anyone know what tone of white I should paint
my Hallicrafters S-41W to match the original?

It looks like and eggshell-satin now but is riddled
with a greyish mold-like discolorization and thus
it is hard to be certain of the original finish.

After I get the shell re-painted I will need to
find someone who can provide replacement lettering/
silkscreen for a few dollars or use craft store
lettering and just find a replacement Halli. logo.

My plan is to wipe down the surface with a cleaning
agent, possibly bleach, in case the grey speckling/
smudging is paint mold.

Then very lightly rough the surface with a fine sanding
agent.  Then wipe it down to remove grit.  Then apply
two coats of spray paint.

Then I would like to add the lettering/silkscreen and
finally seal everything with a sprayed on clear coat.



Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
