I have seen vent visors painted to match the trucks. What I was wondering is: can I use the duplicolor aresol can of bright white from Auto Zone or O'Riley's to come close to matching the color of my 07white truck? Has anybody used the duplicolor dodge/chrysler bright white for any matching purposes and have ya had satisfactory results? Thanks for any help here.

You will need a plastics adhesion promoter. The rattle can white might be close, I would just have a shop do them.

I got mine painted to match the truck. A body shop did it while i was getting some work done. They said they put some other stuff in the paint because at hiway speeds they can flex and may crack the paint. I love the way it looks. Nice and clean.

if you dont want to go to the cost of having a paint shop do this for you here is what you do.
if you buy the duplicolor paint.
spray a test panel - use piece of scrap or something you dont care about, when its dried
put it next to your truck see if its a match.
Clean vent good with soap and water.
Use a scotchbrite pad (red) scuff vent
clean with a prep solvent ( nothing to agressive as it will melt the plastic
spray a DUST coat of self etching primer. you do not need to go heavy with this
self etch primer will allow paint to adhere to vent. and a dust coat is
Spray your paint - 1st coat i would spray light (i call this a tack coat) then go back with
two medium coats
I would use plastic adhesion promoter and a flex agent,you can get the adhesion promoter in a spray bomb at any auto paint supply the flex agent you usually add to your paint or I think you can get flex bumper paint that can cover all the bases.
