Krylon Fusion paint from Walmart. Wash it up with dish soap. Let it dry. Spray away

Go to Carquest and buy the factory matching PPG or Dupont Paint. I have had NO problems EVER with this paint and it matches perfect. I have painted numerous parts on my truck to match the body, it always looks stock, and no-one can tell. I repainted my entire front end this way and the results are fantastic.
