Slop Grey, you can get it at CJ Pony parts.

The braces from the shock towers to firewall, the lower pan in the headlight bucket, the angled brackets attaching the headlight bucket to the radiator support, the upper radiator support brackets and the hood latch bracket (which extends from the top two bolts on the rad support to the bottom of the rad support)(only the rearmost portion). All these should be the dark slop grey. By the way the hood hinges, shock tower brackets and the hood latch, should he natural and not painted. Phospho will protect the bare metal. The hood latch and hinges were also treated with clean oil. Per MCA if that matters. You can get details from Ford assembly manuals.
