Did it match good ?

Perfectly.

Sorry, forgot to mention it's silver not white. But they mix it up in the shop fresh in about 20 minutes.

I tried out the duplicolor spray can for my super white and it turned out really off. I'm going to pull em off and take my eyelids as well as my grille to a shop and get em professionally done when I have a little money to do so.

Ditto, I ended up getting 5 cans from spraycansunlimited on ebay. Closer but I don't think it's perfect.

As for the code it's 40

^^^ Same for me. I paid $25.00 for a custom mixed rattle can from a local paint shop and did them myself. The were close but not close enough for me. I had my buddy that's a body-man take them to work and spray them. I'm Indigo Ink and he said he had to do them three times to get a good match. According to him, there are three or four different "recipes" for Indigo Ink and I would assume most other colors as well. Not sure what that would have cost me since my buddy did them for free. Just cost me a few Jack & Cokes...well worth it!
