Hi, Matt - nope, never tried that one.
That Krylon 1404 cap
is definitely bright Chrome, butt the paint itself isn't near that. I sprayed an extra rightside lower that I had - matched it up against the rest of ole Toad's lowers and couldn't hardly tell the difference. Fact, when I painted those parts, I did a half panel on the front spoiler, ran out of the first can, and had to finish with another can - painted the whole thang again, cuz wuzn't sure painted/non-painted.
Based on your findings, and Brian Collier's finding, and my finding (actually lifted from someone on the forums, but I forget who
), there prolly are several spray paint colors that closely match the early model year LT lowers.
You finish painting yours yet?? I'll be interested in what you find and how it looks.
