Does anyone know of paint that will closely match the grey colored pieces that surround the headlight bezels? You can see what I'm referring to below:



I had to replace most of my front end after an unfortunate encounter with a deer a few years ago - and the driver side surround had been painted black. I'd like to restore it all to the factory grey - just not sure what to go with.

Ford dealership parts counters used to sell a rattle-cans of paint. There were two metallic silvers used for earlier car grilles and such, Light and Dark Argent. That said, the 71-73 big Cats had a satin black background color (I have some NOS pieces laying around)

Thank you! I assume the satin-black you're referring to is the black color in the bezels themselves, while the light argent is used in the surrounding pieces. That was the arrangement my car had originally.
