Anyone know where I can get the proper shade of grey or silver  paint for the speedo and the gauge cluster?

what you want is aluminum color

i use dull aluminum krylon
after you add your lettering you can cover with clear matte finish to add a little shine.

Where did you get the Dull Aluminum Krylon paint?  I've looked around and can't seem to find it here locally.  I can find the aluminum, but not the dull aluminum.

I don't know where to get it
it was free for me at the end of an auction no one wanted paint stuff

I think matte or  satin is the sheen you was to end up with so if you find a matte or satin aluminum you will be ok
