Colour question

Would anyone happen to know what colour would be a good match for the silver Ford used on the radio bezel in the 07 Level II's?

Cheers,
D.

Silver. Right. Thanks for the tip.

So would that be Tremclad silver, or Rustoleum silver, or the cheapo Wal-Mart silver, or Krylon silver, etc.?

Not all silvers are created equal. I was hoping someone might have found a good match. I'll keep looking.

Cheers,
D.

Dave this will be hard to do exact much
Try to go to the dealer and see if they have some silver touch up open and try it

Just take the bezel off, and run to the canadian tire and find the closest cap that matches in the auto paint section.

Yeah, I figured it would be tough to match. I ended up running into Canadian Tire and getting a can of Duplicolor Ford Light Shadow Gray. Looks pretty close. I hope it doesn't come out too glossy though. The bezel has almost a satin finish, not a gloss one. If it doesn't turn out right, I'll try the dealership approach.

I suppose I should mention that it isn't for the bezel. I'm putting an OHC in and the bit that wasn't black on the one I salvaged (it was tan) I'm matching up with the bezel colour. Don't get me wrong, I like my black truck, I just think FoMoCo could have made a little more use of the silver/gray from the bezel in the cab. The door handle trim for instance.

Cheers,
D.
