Rick's First Generation has the shock paint in spray cans - #32-030 - matches original Delco color and gloss exactly. Used it on my (original) spiral shocks before selling them to a local Camaro restorer (they will live on as "correct" shocks on a "trailer queen" original COPO car he owns), and used it to paint the new Delco gas shocks I replaced them with.

The space saver in my 1969 is gray in color, but I am not sure of the exact color. I plan on painting in the next few weeks, so I will have to match the color at a local paint shop. I had the same question on the color myself. The tire is made be BF Goodrich and is 7.75-14 in size as dictated on the sidewall. This size depends on the tire/wheel combination it replaces. You can see a picture of it here. The inflator pictured is a GM service replacement and differs from the original which is larger in diameter. Hope this helps.
