What rattle can brand READY available from Lowe's,Wal-Mart, or Home Depot will match Terex green ? Don't need the real paint just something ready available.

Thank you for your time.

Rust-Oleum used to have one called Sour Apple that was a near dead ringer, but it was discontinued.

Maybe try this one?

Honestly, the best thing to do would be to shoot down to the hardware store and grab a bottle a try it out. They also make a Green Apple, but it's a satin finish.

If you can buy Montana spray paints where you are, then Montana Gold 'Poison' is an excellent match.
