Hello all, does anyone know, which is the best brand of Silver Spray Paint to match BMW's silver on the handlebars/ triple clamp?

Sincerely - Mike

It really depends on what surface you’re trying to paint on. I assume you’re talking about quality versus color.  The best for me is two-part polyurethane you can get mixed up into a spray can at local auto shops, good ones.  Car paint if you will. Need more information

Thanks. Years back on the Adventure Rider Forum (unfortunately I cant find it), someone recommended a "specific" brand/ code of  Spray Paint that could be purchased at either Lowes - Ace Hardware - Home Depot, that best matches BMW's factory silver, i.e. triple clamps, various other parts.  Anyway, I'm just looking to paint over a few aftermarket parts, which I don't like the color of (its not life or death, but its something I'd like to do, because it bugs me.)
