Duplicolor should be good enough. Never used the stuff myself (they don't have S1) but black is black. There can be variances in how dark the blacks can be but considering that your car is probable starting to fade a little, you'll probably never get an exactly perfect match.

Be careful, Duplicolor is lacquer paint. Plastic doesn't react well with lacquer.

iirc it's alright on some plastics. it's been used on the svt wings, which i believe is abs plastic? what else should i use? not sure if krylon fusion would be weather resistant.

Svt wings are sprayed with baked on and cured factory enamel paint. The lacquer cant get to the plastic unless the you sand through the topcoat durring prep.

My brake calipers are painted with Krylon Fusion. I has held up pretty well for 18mo. Better than caliper paint. lol

well i've seen members use the duplicolor for their wing. i can't use it on my headlights if i sand, primer, paint, and clearcoat? maybe even sand between coats with 600 grit or something.
