for something as big as a lip and sideskirts. i wouldn't cheap out on it...

the differences will be too obvious. I painted my grille with duplicolor silver, and it was BARELY matching. I was lucky it was small enough that it wasn't that noticeable. BUT, if i were to zoom in and examine it closer, i would be able to see the difference.

sorry i didn't mean sides, i meant eyebrows. but true the lip would be obvious if the paint didn't match. but 100 bucks is alot to fork out, especially for a lip which will more than likely be scratched

Its true that the lip WILL get scratched, but it will be on the parts that no one will see, unless they are under your car.

PaintScratch.com has the factory colors available in 12.5oz spray cans but it's pretty expensive. The paint itself is about $30/can, plus the clearcoat is $15/can and primer is also $15/can.
