Question Want to Paint Side Mirror Caps - No Paint Match

Title might sound a bit confusing. I was hoping to remove the mirror caps on my car (which are black right now) and paint them the color match of my vehicle with Duplicolor Paint. Unfortunately, they do not have a color match for 07 Aqua Blue, or "TH".

Does anyone have another paint that they would recommend I use? I've only used Duplicolor paint so I am unsure what to expect with other paint manufacturers.

Most paint stores can now mix any basecoat you need to put it in a spray can. Look local or online.

Then top it with 2K Glamour High Gloss Clear Coat. Its a 2 part clear in a rattle can. Works fantastic.
