Matching metal roofing to existing of over 20 + years

We are putting on a small addition 12x30'and are doing the project ourselves. Over 35 years ago we put a metal roof on, 20 years later were able to find a match for an addition. We are ready to order the metal roofing for our new addition and are having difficulty matching our color "Gold". I believe the existing panels are Clasic Rib type. I do not know the manufacturer of the existing roofing and the building supply where we purchased it seems to be out of business. Contacts made with local building supply company staff is not helpful to date. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Metal Sales Manufacturing (www.mtlsales.com) makes a product called Classic Rib, although I don't think they have a color called Gold. Of course after 35 yrs it's possible that they simply don't carry that color anymore. Central States Manufacturing has a color called Gold, although that doesn't mean that it matches. They are a MRA member. You can see their color chart at: http://www.centralstatesmfg.com/UserFiles/File/color%20charts/08LowRibChart.pdf (copy and paste the link into your top address bar) The thing about it is, after 35 years, chances are that the roof color has faded somewhat, so even if you do find the same color, there might be some difference between the two.
