    try spraying some aircraft paint stripper on it before you buy a new one. you may be able to salvage the one you have now and paint it again.

    using it lightly wont harm it. if you go spraying a ton of it on there, it may start pitting the plastic real bad, but lightly sprayed, it will be fine.

    Indigo ink?

    try a purple primer with a blue top coat (?) for the exact color: OEMPaints.com

    i dont know if it will work but you could try it. Hey man do get some of the Aircraft remover, its a blessing.

    If you want a true match... take it to a shop and have them paint it with the actual paint... just a thought :p
