    Have an a-pillar guage pod and its black. Need it to be smoke grey as its way too dark. I found a matching paint out of a us company, but its 10.50us a can, plus shipping and all that crap. rather use something i can get locally.

    Anyone know where i can get something matched up that will work on a hard plastic? Or sells paint that matches factory colors?

    if not i'll just order from them as the dollar is pretty good as of lately.
