Your almost gonna have to use a brown primer, then gray paint. Hand sand in your patina.

80 sound s a bit course i think that you need to use something around 180 or 220 wet sanding the pink and i would leave the rust just sand it lightly then itll be easier to find after the gray is applied

Why try to match it?  Let it show it's diverse history and character. Some of the best rats have mis-matched body panels. Like this one:
