I am going through the same thing, but with my 60. I have found that the Rustoleum "Heritage Red" works well for metal parts and the SEM aerosol Portola Red works pretty well for the vinyl. I am going to a paint shop this week to see if they can custom match my new vinyl with a custom mix. I have a lot to dye, as I am doing a color change.
