I'm going to do my trim this week also. I found this video to be very useful: http://www.duplicolor.com/training/a..._training.html

Hey so I was looking around on the "Color Match" part of that site...and I found "Signet Silver Metallic"...wellllllll...do you guys think it's actually metallic? I don't think the spray can will have the metallic flakes in the paint. Wouldn't they clog the nozzle? I'd like to paint my engine cover =]

Actually it does have metallic flake in it. DupliColor created a new nozzle actuator to allow for the flake to come through without clogging anything up. Check out the wheel spray video, they discuss it there a bit (if I remember correctly ).

yes it does. i was thinking after i typed the message (becuase i was at the Dodgers game) that there is a paint code on the side of the driver door that tells you the exterior and interior paint code..

you can possibly call towerpaint.com (possibly with a "s," towerpaints) and they can custom make and match your paint color.

i've had a satin silver metalic paint made by them and it looks just exactly like it..
