Polaris paint color question

Does anyone know of any over the counter spray paints that will match Polaris? Close is good enough, it's for my engine bay.

TIA

Call some automotive paint supply companies in SJ. Some have the ability to put the proper color in a spray can.

If all else fails, San Leandro color does it in San Leandro, CA.

Go to Kragens, see their Duplicolor line of spray cans, I am sure you can find one silver metallic close to polaris - within your budget.

Having said that, the new codes do not match polaris that well, just go to a car show and see the newly painted "polaris" cars, they are all over the map. I once spent 3 hours in the sun, going thru paint swatches, to find a very close match to polaris. I was able to find an undisturbed area with the original color on the car. Even then we had to adjust the size of the flakes. No I don't have that information anymore...

Thank you for your replies. Eventually I will repaint the whole car but since i'm already cleaning up the engine and bay i figured it would be good to touch it up.

I heard about Polaris and how difficult it is to match, and even the new paints have changed with new laws.

thanks!
