Looking to paint my grille, need to find the paint.

I did a search, found a thread that would have helped, but it didn't. The links didn't work, so I'm posting here, hoping some one will know. I'm looking to buy the paint so I can paint my grill this weekend. Here is a picture to help:



Edit: Now that I know the name of the paint color, where the hell can I find it. I went to Pep Boys and was unsuccessful.

Open your driverside door, look at that sticker on the door jamb. It'll say something like "EXT PNT" or something similar. It'll be a two digit code. That's your paint code.

Then go here: PaintScratch Touch-Up Paint (rs), Spray Cans, Spray Paint, Paint Pens, Car Paint, Automotive Paint

Follow the prompts to find your year and make and model, then your exterior color code, then bam! You now have your color's proper name AND it's color code.

I don't get it at all. I figured I would go to tirerack.com to see if that help, and of course it didn't. I checked to color box, and all it said was GREEN. I'm like NO ****ING ****!! What a waste of time lol.

well that might be due to the age of your current paint, paint fades over time ( haha I just stated the obvious what moranlol). and the paint you see on the internet is new.
js/ spit balling don't take me as being smartellic just helping.

I hear that. my paint code is FL supposedly toreader red but I have heard it called different. as long as the paint code matches should be okay, are you painting the whole thing or just wanting to touch up?

I went to Pep Boys and found the paint, but it was only available in the 1/2 oz touch up paint thing w/ the brush. FML.
