Silver argent rattle can?

I'm looking to paint my grill molding versus replacing. It would be the molding which the fog light pedestal bolts mount through. I believe the correct color I'm looking for is "argent silver"? I'm thinking it would be easier to repaint than replace both molding pieces? Can anyone recommend a supplier that has the correct rattle can color?

IMO nothing beats the Ford Motorcraft paint in the spray can.

Available at the dealership or many Mustang vendors also sell it.

Those pieces are supposed to be the same color as the grille so even if you purchase new ones you'll need to paint them.

Grille moldings were dark Grey metallic on GT/CS same as grille as mentioned above. Argent Silver on non Cal Spec Mustangs with SG Black Grille

Previously discussed, the best color for the grill & grill molding is NPD's AP-SSW Dark charcoal. $9.95 + shipping.
