    http://www.automotivetouchup.com/ this was a pretty good match for mine, but make sure to primer/seal black before your base coat of silver. I used a grey primer and it came out a bit light. good luck

    I think it was 3 light coats, then 3 "wet" coats of clear. 1 can should do it. 2 if you want to make sure.
