Hello. Does anybody know a spray paint color that's readily available in stores like Home Depot and matches the Macintosh Plus?

and matches the Macintosh Plus?
Which one? The beige or the platinum?
Sorry, beige. But if you know both feel free to share.
Hi. New to the site. I have a very yellowed Macintosh SE, and I am interested in matching the original color of the case with a paint that can be purchased at Home Depot, etc. Did anyone ever provide the correct color informaiton?
You won't find a rattle can that is an exact match, and you certainly should only use plastic dyes such as SEM if you want it to bond to it. Another issue with the SE is that you will be painting over the silkscreen system badge. This affects all Macs after the Plus and all Apple II stuff after the //e.
Around 1986 and thereafter, Apple transposed from physical badges to silkscreen logos on all of their products: I believe that the //c was the first system to receive this treatment with the 'Snow White' design language, later carried into the Platinum design language. Preserving original text is the reason that people Retrobite things, instead of using plastic adhering coatings.
