    Color matching A-pillars

    I just finished my stereo install, and currently have my tweeters surface mounted on the A-pillars. The pods are black, and I was thinking of getting some paint or something to match the A-pillars, or somehow matching the textures too, anyone have any suggestions for a good color-match / technique?
    4 tires...a motor...a couple doors I think...I'd have to check.

    DEADPOOL has recently done this, and it looks amazing. Search for his post on it.

    thx for the heads up...but I'm actually looking to paint the pods, not the A-pillars..I think I said that a little weird in my original post. I'll try and report back if I end up getting a couple different colors and see which one matches the pillars the best.

    If you know someone that assembles models as a hobby and has a little airbrushing kit...because it will take some trial and error (on a scrap piece) to get the color match with a primer coat.

    Too bad the A-pillar trim isn't fabric....then you would hit a fabric store.

    Good call...I picked up some spraypaint from home depot, Rustoleum "Light Machine Gray" which seems to be pretty close, but after pulling off the a-pillar trip, I'm thinking I have a good shot at flush mounting my tweeters...so I'm going to take some measurements and see if thats feasible. Thanks for the help!
