Silver Paint Match

Mostly by virtue of Dumb Luck (as I have no other rational explanation), I discovered that the following brand and part number exactly matches the silver paint on my 2007 KLR 650. It matches in: color, shade and in metallic content.

I bought the can that I have at a local AutoZone.

Brand: Dupli-Color
Color: Silver Charcoal Metallic
Application: Ford
Part Number: BFM0236 (Replaces DSFM / T275)

See attached for a picture of the label that comes on the cap for the can. Note: The label is ONLY on the Cap. There are no Part Numbers or any description other than "Ford" on the can itself.

Good info. I'd been told that Dupli-color WP-101 wheel paint was a good match for Gen1 frames but I haven't tried it myself.
