Grill Paint

Got some chipping on the lower inward flange of my grill so I want to rattle can repaint it. I think it is supposed to be a dark Argent. Any recommendation for the right rattle can paint?

Thanks

Dave

NPD lists AP-GPCS aerosol as the close match for the GT/CS grill (which would be the same color for the grill molding).

Yes. The grill is currently the same as the molding. Thanks, Neil.

I used NPD AP-GPA I think I got that from an older post when I got it and compared it to some parts of the grill that had not been exposed to sun light it looked darn close so I used it . as Neil says for the grill and the grill molding same color.

Here are photos from an old thread discussing paint colors prior to the recommended AP-GPCS being introduced. Some are very close.
