Default Link for paint to color match front and rear bumper and repair left fender

I have decided i want to color match both rear and front fender to my truck. I need to repair the left fender as well, as it have been repaired.

My chrome had wholes which I will get fixed before the paint job, and everything is faded..

Looking for links to what paint to use? As I am based in Denmark I cant find any here!

Looking for primer, paint and clearcoat.

My colorcode is: TR - Medium Graphite Metallic w/ clearcoat

I am going to get a billet grill and the upper chrome trim piece along with billet grill will be painted satin black.





----------

Fender that needs paint:

Hi, there are a number of different paints and techniques you can use to paint your truck. Here is an example. Generally the higher the price and more time consuming the application, the better it will turn out.https://www.carpaintonline.com/paint...chPPGCode=4986

Damn many of thoose are quite expensive.. I am looking more of a cheaper DIY alternative then getting it to the painter!

I have a painter which could fix it and I will go to him if a cant find another alternative that would look semi nice.

get a spray can of Dupli-Color (most sights will all you to search your truck for the color then get you the right paint). $2.50 for a small can and i really dont know how much for the clear coat. anyways i used it on my fender flares and it matches pretty well

Might be a stupid question but i happens their are US "terms and words" I cant translate.. What's that buffing about??

I cant quite figure if I can make a smooth transition from the black repaired part to the allready painted part

buffing is basically just shinning the finish with a foam or cloth wheel. And buffing will allow for a good transition. i would recomend wet sanding when transitioning to make a seamless surface. hope that helps
