As a side note here back in the 70's Cessna painted some 337's with a shade of green that was very close to one of the common zinc chromate shades

The venerable Memphis Bell B17 languished at the end of a Memphis runway for almost thirty years before finally being placed under cover. Still had zinc chromate finish though worn in places.

Can you even get true zinc chromate in the US any more?
