Default Duplicolor Spray Paint for CGM Sideskirts

So I'm looking to get duplicolor spray paint to paint my side skirts CGM Crystal Gray Metallic, I already have all the other materials ready just need the base coat. I already know about paint scratch.com and paint world but I'm looking for a more inexpensive price reason why I'm trying to go the duplicolor route. I've heard Ultra Silver and Pewter Metallic are close to CGM, anybody have any other suggestions or experience using the duplicolor paint?

You're going to want to look through the perfect match book for duplicolor to find the exact color or it will be off. There a ton of colors that seen by themselves look right but against the correct color are obviously different.

These are DGM done with duplicolor maybe 6 years ago and cleared.

do you think a few coats of a white primer under would help lighten the overall finish? just asking out of curiosity

I'd feel better getting a custom-mixed can or two from Paint Scratch.

Only a little more expensive, but why wouldn't you just use actual cgm paint?
