Painting a Car Bumper and Fender with Spray Paint? Help Paint Match Duplicolor
 
Hello, I am trying to paint a car bumper and fender with spray paint, the cheapest way possible. I am looking for a certain color:

2005 Chevy Aveo 95U/WA248L Dove Silver Metallic

This is the color I am looking for but in a Duplicolor mix, I know Duplicolor makes this color, but its very expensive for a can ($12) and you need to have it ordered and shipped. I know the local auto stores sell Duplicolor paints for $6 a can, is there a certain color that is close to this color? Just something very close, even import paint is fine, as long as it is close...

I dont know if anyone has a paint program that they can feed this into and compare it with other automotive paints or something. Please help...

Why don't you go to the Duplicolor website and compare the colors available? If no match, search for other paint companies that sell rattle cans.

if you could get a hold of a paint gun you would easily be able to get them painted with a pint. It would probably come out cheaper than if you have to have a few cans shipped also. Just another thing to think about.
