    Try Duplicolor. Believe it or not A can of duplicolor matched better than custom mix in my case.

    Pretty Close Match

    I've found Duplicolor "DSFM 226 SILVER M" to be the closest thing to a match to the PSM Exterior paint or the simulated brushed aluminum on the interior. If used for exterior also shoot it with a coat of Duplicolor Clear Coat. Try to take your time and use multiple light coats for the best finish. This stuff is not removable so try it out on a junk piece of plastic that is close in color to what you want to paint. This will give you an idea if it will match or not. Just in case it doesn't you won't ruin your Pod and your only out $4.50 (it may be cheaper where you live. I am in Alaska) for the paint.

    I used (forgot the brand of paint) color was stainless steel and it matched pretty much perfectly. I'll write the brand when I get home because I kept the paint. I'll also post pictures of it against the interior silver pieces.

    Interior colors

    go to your local hobby shop, get testor model master metalizer lacquer. Aluminum Plate (1451), and metalizer sealer (1459), and gloss clear lacquer (1961).

    apply the aluminum plate multiple fine coats, DO NOT TOUCH OR BUFF. apply the sealer evenly (watch for runs), then when dry apply multiple coats of the clear lacquer. its a perfect match for the interior even the clear coat matches.

    I will post a pic when I get my photoshop working, its screwed at the moment

    I forgot one thing

    The metalizer takes a long time to fully harden, let it sit for 24 hours then I put it in the sun for about 4 hours before installing it.

    I used Rustoleum (hard hat)- Stainless Steel. I took some pics of my dash but the software for my camera is totally making my computer crash so I can't download my pictures. I'll try again later.
