    Just wondering if anybody has found a spray paint that matches the MGM well enough to spray my emblems.

    I actually just did this, it turned out perfect. You can buy the base coat already mixed and in a spray can. Check this link out, I bought some from this site, was about $30 shipped.

    http://www.repaintsupply.com/pd_magnetic_gray_metallic_clearcoat.cfm

    I used a gray 3M scuffpad to rough the emblem up a bit, then sprayed 2-3 coats of the base coat. Then I used 2-3 coats of clear coating. To stick them back on the truck I used Scotch brand double sided exterior tape (with the red backing that peels off).

    I haven't put up any pics of it yet, but if you would like to see, let me know and I will try to get some up.
