Look at this for the black

The dark silver is more of a challenge. Might have to be custom mixed. I haven't found it yet ready made. I thought I had seen one called dark argent charcoal, but now can't find it.

The black portion on an original grille was not painted, just shiny black plastic

I picked up a pair of Headlight bezels at Carlisle last month ,They are painted silver all over. So the fins should be black ? :beer:

The all silver grille is correct for Satellite. SSP, Road Runner, and GTX had black (unpainted) fins
