2002 frame paint

Looking for an off the shelf paint match for the frame on my 02 that doesn't cost a small fortune and comes in a spray can.

Hell I'd just go with a flat black no gloss

I was researching paint codes and stuff not long ago and I was always directed to colorrite. According to copperdawg that’s who he orders his stuff from, and we all know it’s spot on.

Not cheap, but it’s a dead on match for the factory stuff.

For the frame, I think I'd be happy with "close"...

A number of retail auto paint outlets, are now able to put their paint products into aerosol spray cans. You go to one of them, and ask to look at their paint chip books. Find a close match, and then have them put that color, into a aerosol can.

The place i obtain my paint products from, does that all the time, for small area work, like a bike frame. Great way to do the job. And no spray gun to clean, afterwards.

If you're looking for "close enough" Dupli Color has a series called Perfect Match that comes in aerosol. They have large variety of silvers. They are available at either Advance Auto or Autozone; one of the two.

I've looked at there stuff for a while but can't justify their cost at the present time.

My OCD wouldn't allow it, so it has to be real close.

I was hoping someone had went this route and had found a match.
