Hello , I am getting my car painted and have decided to use a stencil for the "Formula" door badging.
According to Fierosails based on my car's color, the badging for the door is a silver metallic. Does anyone have a paint code for it?
Is the silver a straight silver or does it have metal flake to it?
I am not able to tell from internet images, and the Formulas I have seen in person are usually missing the door decals.
Thank you for any help.

The original was a 3M transfer sticker, so I doubt there ever was a paint code. I believe those stickers are still available....no?

They are metallic, as opposed to a "flat" silver.

If I paint something a generic silver, I use one called Argent Silver. Its a multi brand metallic silver used on things like grills, wheels, rally rims, etc. Any automotive paint store will know what it is.

Have your paint guy show you chips of the Fiero silvers available for your year, & pick out a nice bright silver from those (may only be one). That way you can always match it in the future if you need to.
Argent is a Mopar color, & tends to be somewhat textured...
