Good luck matching it. I tried with some house of kolors base coat silver with a dulling agent in the clear. It was kinda close to the same color, but the texture and finish was way off. I also 1200 sanded the clear down to dull it even more but still didn't match well enough to put it in my truck.

SEM/Colorbond should have what you need. Just google them.

I had a paint company local here match it and it's pretty close. It was a SEM color the guy used and just made me a spray can of it.

Hard to tell from the tiny pick but seems to look good. If you want black mirror caps get some from your dealer or e-bay and the chrome ones pop off and the new ones snap in place. Just tilt the mirror all the way down and there are two clips you can get with a flat screwdriver and pull the cap up and forward then just snap the new ones into place. I put PTM ones on my truck.

I painted my HS mount with walmart plastic paint in a spray can. Looks great but my interior is light tan.
