By the way, the duplicolor brand doesn't match very well for the super white. I thought it would the cheap and easy way...but it was not even close to the correct shade...

I just received my paint from Automotivetouchup and it came out to under $60 for the paint, primer, clear etc. I was actually going to paint mine this weekend.

Another member here mentioned the partsgeek grill so I bought a black mica for $35 and it comes in 2 pieces so you don't have to mask off anything. I figured I can keep my chrome one as an extra piece.

Yeah but not everyone has a "buddies shop"! Can you post up a pic?

Good luck matching superwhite with a rattle can... I tried duplicolor, Krylon and even a much more expensive paintscratch.com. Paintscratch guarantees that their paint will match so I complained when the first set of cans didn't match so they sent me a second set, free of charge and it was better, but still not the same. I ended up just buying an OEM color matched for $185 shipped through a dealership. Lesson learned, Superwhite is tough to match...
