I found the paint at advanced auto parts, they have an entire isle of duplicolor color match spray paint. Just find the one you need, its very simple because they have them catagorized Ford,Dodge,Chevy,imports....etc. prep was simple just a light wet sanding of 1500 the wiped off with soap and water,them wiped off with rubbing alcohol, masked then about 4 or 5 coats of paints and that's all!

That's sounds easy enough.

Hardest part was masking! Very simple and I feel it adds a much better looking front end!

And thank you!!!!
