    you might want to try and take a sample from one of the tanks and bring it to a hardware store or big commerical hardware store and see if they can match or get a closer shade to the color.

    Take the cylinder to a Lowe’s or Home Depot store. Go to the paint department and they can scan the cylinder and it will match the color of the paint used. Then if you want they can produce a quart of for you.

    If it was I making a lamp from an old cylinder, I would leave it as it is. Wash is good and let it be.
