Silver paint

It's odd that I can't find anything on this topic on other forums.

I have some nasty scratches in the silver plastic. Does anybody have a color match?

Thanks

Rustoleum's Metallic # 7271830 - Silver Metallic, or Professional Metallic # 244493 - Silver Metallic spray can is said to be a perfect match in the Thumpertalk forum for Kawasaki's # 458 Metallic Phantom Silver color as used on Kawasaki KX frames, for much less and available at most hardware store... I'd like to try it sometime, also on swingarm and handlebar mount. It rated better than other compared brands in terms of durability and metallic flake size:

I used the Rust 0 Titanium Silver, All surface universal.

Looks great.

Is it a good match for the silver on Versys' swingarm, handlebar clamps, silver frame, etc? It's not available in Canada either...

I'll just try some locally available Dupli-Color Ultra Silver T191 'Truck, Van & SUV' premium acrylic lacquer. It's pretty close to Rust-Oleum's Silver Metallic 7271830, and it covers a bit better :

So they didn't have Dupli-Color's 'Ultra Silver' T191, but I got a can of Dupli-Color 'Radiant Silver' T347 which had more texture than two other 'Silver' variants. It (and Rust-Oleum's) may not be identical to original Phantom Silver... I'll just touch it up for now, then later paint the entire swingarm without the stickers, the silver footpeg mounts and handlebar mounts, probably also with a clear coat. It's used to match Audi's silver as see here:
