    all depends on what you are putting it on and how many layers you put on it.....

    are you trying to blend into that color or just like the color and want to use it elsewhere?

    why not just bondo to it and paint it all the same color instead of trying to match it? or will that not work?

    Some car's have a perfect din hole to fit a screen into, so what he's probably just gonna do is mount it, and match the color to the faceplate of whats holding the screen....

    I wanna do the same, but I want to match the screen faceplate to the color of my car's faceplate.

    That is pretty much the situation. Xenarc is attached inside the inner dash. Dash "bezel" is just a fascia that butts up to the screen. One of the requirements for my project was the screen was not opened.

    Main reason I want to match a paint to Xenarc silver.... The Celica console is a dark gray/silver metallic. For warranty and future car installation, I am keeping Xenarc intact and unadulterated.

    I'm looking for a paint to match the dash color and a paint to match Xenarc silver. I plan to do a subtle fade into the recess housing.
