    If you are talking about aerosol cans then its pretty hard for us to help you out there... you will have to search for it, but if you are looking for the paint then just pop by any car paint shop (there are a few in State, PJ) and tell them "satria yellow ori", they will know what colour... hehehe

    OR just drive your car there if the paint is tarnish, they will be able to advise you how to mix and match to the exact tarnish colour.... believe me, they are quite good.

    for me, i havent try on such a big piece.. so i dunno how will it look like..
    but the paint itself looks very very close to the ori color, probably the closest u can find among all the aerosol cans

    if i'm not mistaken, they have more than 1 silver, so make sure u get the 1 that matches yor car

    another thing u can try is to buy according to the name of yor paint..
    for example i'm driving a grey color gen2, n according to the color board in proton show room, its called a Galaxy Grey..
    so when i buy, s should look for this Proton GalaxyGrey or something like that..

    i remember there's 1 time i went to ACE and saw 1, but its written there Proton Ggrey.. i wasnt sure if thats the 1 i need, so i din buy =P

    khguan: yours look good... quite matching there. But if spray in a wide area (ie like a door or something) sure can tell the difference right?

    I never opt for aerosol sprays la, i usually leave it until i some other place are dented then i will just sent it over to the shops to kau tim one shot lar... but learn how to use the sandstone and putty la for all the small dents.

    learnt knocking fenders and dismantling body parts from there also la... hehehe
