Default Vintage look on DIY QUAD 405 chassis

Any ideas on how to (spray/powder/...) paint one of the brand-new Chinese-made QUAD 405 DIY enclosures available on ebay?

I wanted to get that 1970's dull grey and silver look that sort of just blends in.

My project is to build and fit a stereo Modulus-86 amp [1] (with an SMPS300RE power supply) inside this classic chassis.
