So has anyone out there found a paint color match for the silver? I tried plasti-kote #5604 and it says subaru on the top, but it is the legacy silver (read doest NOT match). I'm going to try Plasti-kote #8135. Anyone have any better ideas? Also for anyone that is trying to paint their side skirts on their own so far I have painted the little strips that are above the side skirts on the rear, and it turned out looking better then the factory paint. I have yet to find out how long it will last, but it seems to be very strong. The order I used for painting was bull dog paint adhesion promoter (2 cotes), plasti-kote #5204 primer (2 strong cotes) then wet sand (1 strong cote) wet sand then the base color (3 heavy cotes) no wet sand then clear (2 cotes). 5 Min. between cotes, 30min before wetsand and soap and water after wet sand. If anyone has any questions or comments about either the procedure or the way I spelled cote (i dunno how to spell it and i dont feel like looking it up ) please feel free to post em!
