There are no paint stores around here that will mix up a spray can of factory HL color for me. Which duplicolor from walmart is closest?

Thanks...

also depends on what you are painting... if its just accessories you can use Duplicolor "Toreador Red" it's the absolute closest I can find..

mine are painted professionally... the dealer painted mine Laser Red and Dark Shadow Grey.. it was part of the 1700.00 bill that I received so I am unsure as to how much that actual service cost.

Oh...ok

I've painted my factory grill and lower grill both silver and put red mesh behind the lower part...looks nice.

What I will do is only paint those circles that surround the 3 lights (in each headlights) themselves silver as well.

Crispy - One question I always get a mixed answer on is will I need a sealant to re-seal the headlights after painting?

I never have replaced any sealant... I re-use what was there and I just press firmly to make it seal and use a hot blowdryer to warm the sealant up before and after.. if you get any condensation remove the black bulb cover doors from the back..
