Simple one this:

I need to paint a plastic bit silver in a short term repair attempt. However, it sits next to some brushed aluminium bits so I want to match it as close as possible.

Which shade of silver would be best? I'm thinking Reflex Silver at the moment, but I'm not limiting myself to just VW paints. If another manufacturers paint is closer I'll go with that.

Any suggestions?

Got another one for you Patch...

I used the Aluminium paint, looks real nice. I let it cure and then lacquered it. How long should I leave the lacquer to cure before I fit the piece? 24 hours?

Its a interior plastic trim piece that's been sprayed, for the dashes central fascia (radio cage).
