Any bodayshop, bodyshop supply, and even the dealer.

For small jobs, Dupli-Color sells rattle cans that match your paint code. DO YOU KNOW UR CODE?

From what I'm hearing from you, save up some cash and have it done professionally. You'll be more happy with it being done right then attempting it yourself. Just my .02 cents

If yours is the mineral grey like in my sig then the paint code is PDM
if your looking for cheap paint duplicolor sells a Grey in there perfect match paint that is the grey from second gens and is extremely close to PDM. I know a guy who has color matched his megas cowl,grille, mirrors and handles with it and it matches really well. I can get you pictures if you would like to see it
