I have an 04 Silver coupe. Does anyone know if krylon makes something close to Satin Silver Metallic? Honda touch up paint REALLY blows. THanks

Why not get the paint code and taking it to a paint shop to get paint?

Or take your gas lid and have them match it.

If you look along the inside door jamb of the drivers side, your paint code is listed. That, and the interior color is listed too. Just take that code to any paint shop and they should be able to get you the *exact* color.

Silver metallic is still hardcore hard to match...usually will look slightly different in different lights- our your car will be two-toned totally.

Better yet take the code to a paint supply place and cut out the middle guy.
