Has anyone found an acceptable color for this spring?

Thanks, Doc.

I have a repro one I purchased by mistake.  It's green I think.  Don't know if it's correct tough.

I don't recall how/where I learned this, but I'm thinking the Z28 carb return spring was 'green'...??

I have an original on my red Z. It is green, but kinda a aqua blue-ish green.
Here is the best pic I could grab. :)

I don't know if it's the right color but I found an exact Krylon for the inside of the speedo pod and it kind of looks that color.  It's called Catalina Mist.
