Restoration tips

I have an old 12 speed Team Banana which is beginning to show signs of rust around the frame, especially under the fork crown and the rear dropouts. I'd like to give those areas a respray but due to the age of the existing paint I know that finding a white to match the faded aged white will be a problem, same with the yellow. Does anyone know a way to match the paint colour?

No matter where you are, that's where you've been
