I want to paint the blade of a Vortlex that has the bronze/tan color scheme.  The blade is tan and I'd like to know if anyone's found a close color match in a rattle can.  Any suggestions?

You might find something at your local auto part store in the small but expensive color match spray cans they have. I believe the brand name is Duplicolor. Take the blade with you so as to get a good match.

John Fengel found a color that is identical. I have the color at home, but you might PM John for the code.

The "Bronze" for the Housing, Base, etc. is DupliColor Bronze. Some auto parts stores carry it but some have discontinued it. I got my last couple of cans at O'Reilly's Auto Parts. As for the Blade "Tan", I don't know of a color match although there probably is one. I just normally strip the Blade and polish it.
